For my project I utilized contortion pleating to create a garment that was simple in silhouette but interesting in design. I created a black trapeze dress initially but was unsatisfied with the lack of drape my fabric had and my pleats were not large enough to create the swing and flare I originally intended. I was unhappy so decided to create a contortion shift dress. I used black suede-like straps to create contrast and add dimension to the all cream colored dress. It has the flow and drape I intended to create and is less structured as my original dress.
Pleats pleats please please please
The feel against skin
It’s never been sexier
