Inspiration for this dress came from Lady Gaga, and the beautiful origami dress(es) she’s worn on several occasions.
To get that stiffness in the skirt, it’s made from a black furniture fabric and corset ribs. Also the top part uses ribs to make it stay in place. On the right shoulder, there are two black buttons for decoration. There’s a large, black visible zipper in the back to match the fabric choice.
When I made this, a couple of years ago I was a bit heavier (something which I had totally forgotten by the time I was doing some last-minute preparations for this New Years). Half a day left and my dress looked like a bloody tent… what to do, what to do? I know, add a belt! Hm.. not good enough since the waist line is a bit low it just looks funky. So, I grabbed some left-over fabric from a skirt, sewed it together real quick and attached it to the dress with the super elastic belt. When I got to the party, the first comment was “omg, that looks so Tim Burton/Helena Bonham-Carter-ish – but in a good way! Wait, what now… is that That dress?”. Here we go, this is apparently what you get when you mix Lady Gaga and Tim Burton!
