As many others, this dress also started with a casual visit to Abakhan Fabrics. Between the rolls of fabric I found those multicoloured birds sitting on a jersey.
For a long time I didn’t know what to do with them. I just wasn’t ready to cut into those little birds. I started draping the fabric around my red Diana. Finally, when I had to form the neckline I was ready to take my scissors and cut.
In the end I was lucky because I had been desperately trying to choose what to do as my draping assignment at school and the homework had just done itself!
