grey knot dress









dress - self made 

lately i'm in the mood for monochromatic looks
and neutral colors
and new to me shapes
..
maybe it's just a phase..
there is a wonderful floral fabric
that is about to become a dress
of obnoxiously colorful kind
but.. until that happens
gray is my new best friend
..
this dress is a love child
of one burda pattern and one 'pattern  magic' dress
german-japanese alliance 
but a nice one, for change
(just in case, i decided to leave my italian shoes at home
to save myself from a head to toe 'axis' outfit)
..

  3. Oh, that's interesting. I immediately recognised Pattern Magic caracteristic design. Like how you modified it. I made a dress inspired by Stingray dress in Pattern Magic 3. It's in My Burdasyle.com gallery.

  4. MOKOSHA IN GREY??!?!?! I love it. It's like when Kazz went beige - blew my mind. This dress is so fucking cool - I would love to see it unknotted to see how it works....

  9. Ha! Axis outfit...
    This is gorgeous - nothing wrong with a little monochrome - especially when the dress has this much visual interest. I love dresses like this that make me want to figure out how they work!

  10. Ah, this is a beautiful dress. I love the versatility of it. Each way you wear the wraps gives it a completely different feel.
