This dress was inspired by the Oulipo Movement.
Oulipo is a loose gathering of (mainly) French-speaking writers and mathematicians which seeks to create works using constrained writing techniques.
Constraints are used as a means of triggering ideas and inspiration by forcing you to work within certain rules. I took this idea of being restricted by rules and used it to create this dress.
My rules were:
1. Only use two pattern pieces for the dress.
2. No angle on the flat pattern could be less than 70 degrees.
I intend to make many more with these rules in mind.
