Why, a tent dress, of course. The hottest days of summer have arrived, and so has our newest draping video. As you think about designing (and dressing) for the summer season, easy loose-fitting pieces inevitably come to mind. We can’t think of a better time to introduce how to drape a tent dress.
Now, if you are into “roughing it” in terms of a camping experience, you may want to head over to our videos on rendering plaid or camouflage. However, if you are more inspired by these “glampsites,” and can envision yourself lounging with a summery beverage in a free flowing dress, by all means, take a look at our latest draping video.
In our Tent Dress video, you will learn how to drape a boat neck tent dress with a cut-away armhole. We will teach you how create your boat neck and armhole style lines and then how to drape your flares to add fullness to the tent dress. This lesson also includes how to draft a facing, known in the industry as an all-in-one facing.
The amount of “flare” you like in your tent dress and/or your campsite is up to you, the designer. Providing you with the tools to drape your tent dress – from preparing your muslin to showing you how to determine your hem length – is up to us. Wishing you all kinds of adventure this summer, both in design and the out of doors.
