Since I started sewing, the structure and aesthetic of quilted garments has seemed fascinating, and it’s been a technique I’ve used in many designs. For a long time, I wondered about constructing a garment using a stretch jersey base with quilted panels of woven fabrics, in this case silks.
To wear to the Velvet fashion show last week (which was an awesome time with Anna, Meredith, & Tyler!) had the opportunity to try this out in a dress form. Flats and forms in the following photos. This dress is a variation on the “wrapped dress”. It proved to be extremely comfortable, relatively warm, and, in theory, reversible.
