Bryce Dallas Howard attends the Terminator Salvation after party in a Mario Schwab dress I pattern cut for his AW2009 collection . The base of the dress is a lovely print and then the whole dress is covered in clear sequins. A simple line but a very stylish dress.
Pattern cutting this dress was fun and interesting.
The idea of parts fitted with fabric coming out from under the fitted parts was a great concept. The pattern for the rouching was so big by the time I finished I thought it looked like a work of art. Parts were rouched tightly and others more apart which gave great visual texture. Again as all of Marios’s outfits, there is a lot of infrastructure on the inside. It took two toiles to get it to what Marios wanted.
Success. This was the best selling dress of the season. Not surprised. It is a very elegant, feminine and sexy dress.
