Purple Shimmers Robe Dress

Purple Shimmers Kimono Dress

First of two new original dress designs utilising waist deep kimono type sleeves with turn-backs, fitted onto narrow bodice top front and back. High waist gathered under bust line front and back, with adjustable sized lace up front. Patchworks are irregular rectangular, according to material available.  An qual number of patches is best, but to satisfy a certain collar collection, some fabrics need to be short patches and some longer patches.  Front facing behind lace up enables variable fitting 36-40 inch bust.

Similar sister styled dress in red and black is shorter but has extended collar to hem  Aldebaran

Purple Patchwork Coordinating

Jumble fabrics, in order to see how well they go together which gives a good indication for patchwork. I didn't choose the violet velvet in the final choice.
