I have always loved Yves Saint Laurent's "Mondrian" dress, from 1967...
...and have wanted to make a dress in this style for some time. Well, I did - last week. Just in time to wear to an exhibition in Melbourne last Thursday.
I drafted the pattern myself, and it is a little different from the original...but similar enough that the ladies at the exhibition recognised it. What a relief :-)
I needed to add tucks after completion because the "shift" silhouette was not very flattering. But overall I am happy with it...after all I am no YSL!
