A sleeve(less) dress

I wanted a shawl dress, a dress that muffles me.

I sewed wings instead of sleeves. I belive that two thinks are essential when conceiving a look: the shoes and the sleeves. As Cristobal Balenciaga, the sleeve perfectionist, I try to experiment with these parts of the garment, to find the right shape giving the perfect combination of freedom, comfort and style.

I found a sober but soft plaid for the dress and a degradé silk for the lining. I hooked the two sleeves panels inside the front darts. So I can change from a sleeved look to a shawl look by hanging the two panels at the back or by bringing them to the front.
