A TNT in NYC Designer Tweed
This dress is all about the “famous NYC designer” fabric that I chose for it. I did add some pink piping to bring out the pink flecks in the fabric but I knew when I found it in the designer aisle at Mood NYC, that I was going to use my TNT dress pattern for it.
2 yards designer tweed fabric
20″ metallic zipper
pink rayon bemberg lining
black rayon seam tape
pink rayon seam tape
1/4 yard black lightweight interfacing
All of the construction techniques are contained in this post on my blog.
My TNT dress is a basic silhouette that gets its distinction by adding a few design elements. For this version, I started with a fantastic piece of fabric then I added an exposed zipper in the back and some bright pink piping.
I love the versatility of this dress…
Back view with exposed zipper
Worn with pink cardigan and belt
Dress worn like a jumper with a black turtleneck
It was wonderful to work with this fabric. I ended up with a very versatile dress that can be worn alone or with other pieces.
…as always more later!
Editor’s note: We sold out of Carolyn’s fabric, but we have lots more wool tweeds available in our stores and online.
