The Weekend Shift
Mudcloth and linen dress

Another striking, yet simple dress. I was inspired by the typical loose fitting caftan style in Africa and modern art that I had been looking at.

The color block works particularly well with the linear silhouette. Although I use mudcloth sparingly, the effect is quite spectacular. The mudcloth introduces another contrast to the red linen and balances with the black linen.

I finished the dress with a binding detail on hem. The result is a wonderful little dress that is very contemporary.
