Abstract

Lovesome; lovely and lovable, two words that perfectly describe the young woman who would wear this garment. Inspired by trips abroad, along with the youthful and flirtatious spirits, this simple white dress allows the vibrant colors of spring to compliment the innocence and beauty of the look. A fun and care free touch is presented through the ruffles along the bodice of the dress, while the back cutout adds a touch of sex appeal. The fitted silhouette of the dress is figure flattering and gives a balance to the cascading ruffles along the bodice of the dress. The color white was chosen as a symbol of innocence and youth. The color also provides a clean and versatile look to every wardrobe and can be worn to many different occasions. The garment was draped, patterned and constructed by hand. Once the exterior and lining of the dress was constructed, they were carefully hand sewn together with a technique where all the stitches are inside the seams and not visible from the exterior or interior. The garment, Madi, was named after the model wearing the piece; this idea was inspired by wedding dress designer, Hayley Paige, who names each of her dresses, as it makes them more personal and meaningful. This is one in a line of three garments.
