Acute Dress

I made this entirely out of triangles, piecing them together as I went. I am extremely proud of this dress!

    wowsers - this dress is amazing! Could you pretty please consider making this a pattern or posting a tutorial? I would so make this!

    Thanks so much! :) Hmm I'll try to work on something that clarifies the process!

    I love the bodice! Great way to make the deep V wearable.

    This is awesome!! I love the way the contrasting panels exaggerate the shape of the dress! Especially the back! You should feel proud!

    Thanks! It's actually just the front and back of the same piece of fabric!

    Wow this dress looks great! Sewing on the bias is not easy...

    Dana replied 8 years ago

    Thanks! I was actually able to avoid sewing on the bias at all; all the triangles are cut on the grain. I think the weight of the fabric helped to keep the shape.

    this is fantastic! and you made it without a pattern?! skills.

    Yeah! Thanks!

    You should be very proud, it looks amazing. And it is quite inspiring for a shirt I'm planning to make, I don't have enough fabric of this one piece, so this might be the perfect solution. Thanks for sharing!
