Drew is responsible for naming this dress. I tried it on to show him my finished work for the day, and he said, "That dress is an illusion!"
This idea came from my ballet days. I bought a leotard from a professional ballerina when she retired. It was all black, but it had teal oval-shaped insets instead of side seams. So, from a front or back view, it looked like I had the best hourglass shape and a tiny waist like a cartoon.
For my Illusion dress, I did geometric insets, a deep v-neck, and soft bias-cut sleeves.
