DIY - Tuxedo Wrap Dress

Ejmiatsin “I am a fashion person, and fashion is not only about clothes—it’s about all kinds of change.” – Karl Lagerfeld

Annaka So I made the pattern for this look over a year ago but I wasn’t inspired to make it, seeing as we didn’t have many occasions to attend in the past year. But I couldn’t let it go to waste especially because drafting the pattern was quite laborious, so I finally decided that I had to make the dress. This dress was inspired by Karl Lagerfeld and his signature black and white look, but I decided to make it more feminine. I thought of combining a classic tuxedo look with a wrap dress. I drafted the pattern from a princess cut pattern which I previously used for another blazer dress, and made it out of poly-cotton suiting fabrics.
