Fabric Project No.6 "Oceanic Stripe"

Good evening, friends!
As my hectic week approaches its end like sun reaching its horizon at dusk, I'm greeting you with my next #FabricProject.
This weekend I'm going boating, so I imagined this dress flapping in the winds of deep seas, hence the name "Oceanic Stripe". I always compare my projects and outfits to nature phenomena, especially vibrant colors and textures. I know you've seen a similar pattern before from the "Sunset Stripe" project, so when I was hauling fabric, I saw two similar striped jerseys, yet so different in color. I thought, "I will turn these materials in two distinct outfits!". 
As a big fan of Milly New York design studio, I drew inspiration from her strapless textured dress that looks so effortless yet chic. Obviously, the $395 price tag made my eyes roll in anticipation of my own creation (for much less). 

Here's the inspiration:

And here's my version:
Stay tuned for completed design!
