So i have already mentioned here, that we have launched a brand new clothing line. Right now, we tailor to order. So if you are interested in an Escalia piece, shoot us an email.
Now onto today’s business.
Today, I want to briefly show you how we created the Zira dress. The Zira dress is a little black dress in our current collection with satin insert at the neckline and a whimsical tulle peplum at the knees. Its really lovely and can be worn to church, weddings or a date depending on how you dress it up or down. Change the tulle to woven and you have a fancy work wear that will turn heads when you sashay pass.
How did I make the dress?
I used freehand technique to create this piece. This means I drafted directly on fabric, I did not use any store-bought patterns.
See the cutting below:
I cut these from both fashion fabric and the lining. The only difference is that I did not cut a neckline insert for the lining.
Here is a short video clip, showing a behind the scenes glimpse of the making of the dress.
What the final outfit looks like.
