The hole dress

Why is it named thus, you ask? Scroll down..

That’s why..”What a weird shaped hole!”, you might think. It was originally intended to be in the shape of a heart, since I made it around Valentine’s day n all…I’ve noticed my mind wanders a lot while cutting..While day dreaming about how nice the finished dress will look, I forgot to cut the ‘dip’ in the heart, and instead merrily cut a straight line. So now it looks like a dew drop..Okay, that’s not so bad.

The fabric is ancient.I have a magpie like tendency to collect fabric, and this particular one had a cross-wise stretch to it, that made me go “whoa”..i had to have it..It sat around in my overflowing cupboard for 4 years, only to become a dress with an intentional hole in it..he he..The pattern is self drafted.

I think it looks beautiful, with a watercolor effect. It particularly looks great against the distressed wall of my apartment building, like a clash of two things that are different..(i was supposed to write something intelligent there, but I’m soooo sleep deprived”.

The bodice is finished fully with a soft cotton lining to cover the raw edges, ( that’s the only way I sew these days). The skirt has a lining with organza ruffles attached to it, to give a little volume, or as they say, ooomph..

I used press buttons, because I didn’t want to take on button holes and buttons..that was too much work.


I took these pictures with my DSLR Canon 1000D. Any interesting photography tips anyone has with a basic DSLR, please share.
