Purple Shimmers Robe Dress - Making Process

Patchworks are variable rectangular according to material available.  An equal number of colour/design patches is usual, but to satisfy a certain colour collection, some fabrics are shorter and some longer depending on stock, adding another charming aspect.(Click to enlarge images into Making Gallery)
