Houndstooth Jigsaw Dress

This houndstooth jigsaw dress was made from an existing recycled size 20 pencil dress, (as seen in the photos above).

I unpicked all the seams on this dress and cut in to quite randomly to piece this jigsaw puzzle dress together. One thing I found when fitting this on my model was that I’d cut an arch in the front, but this made the dress too short (especially when sitting). To resolve this I added additional pieces to extend the front and side length.

The dress is made up of asymmetric panels (some pleated), a front bold zipper that is partially concealed by the fold over front panel (featuring vintage buttons).

This takes on the transformative aspects of the metamorphosis theme, combined with partially hidden layers.
