This LADYFIT features elements from folk dress, mainly emphasizing the sleeves. I've been breaking down the shapes that make up Czech folk dress. The V- lace inset on the chest is another example of shapes taken from Czech folk dress. I owe a lot to a book by Vaclavik, referenced in previous posts on my exploration into folk elements. This LADYFIT is at the beginning stage of what is to be applied, explored and evolved into this project. It's in the winter state of dress_dorment in elaboration + color.
