Process & Features
Pepper’s iconic blue dress from the first Iron Man film was made with navy stretch satin fabric and a dress form to my measurements. The pattern is custom, drawn and cut from a duct tape and saran wrap mold of my dress form.
Once patterned, pieces were traced onto the final fabric and cut out. Interfacing was ironed on to the inside of the bunching on the bottom back, before attached to overlay the lower train. After pinning together appropriately, this one layer dress was sewn together section by section. A zipper is installed on the lower back.
