Pattern: Giles Deacon

published on 18 December 2012

The ninth instalment in the series came from one of London's top talents. Acclaimed designer and party dress doyen Giles Deacon offered up the pattern to his saucy double duchess silk 'The Troubadour' dress from Autumn/Winter 2007 collection. The frock - which was modelled on the runway by Lara Stone - is part playful, part traditional, thanks to eighteenth century notes such as a regal square neckline and puff sleeves. Simply download the pattern - designed to fit a standard UK size 10 - and get to work crafting your own unique version of the frock. Deacon recommends using a fabric which has some structure to it, ideal choices would be heavy weight silk, denim or leather.

'I chose the dress from A/W 07 as it's relatively easy to make and would work in a variety of fabrics. I can't wait to see people's versions!' - Giles Deacon.
