my two silly little girls. i can never get enough of them. k, let me rephrase that, sometimes i want to scream and just be alone for a sec. but most of the time, i can never get enough of them and miss them all the time when they’re not with me.
what if i told you i made this dress from a long vintage skirt? click here to see the before transformation.
my inspiration for the design: this was actually a long vintage skirt(click to see the before)that’s been transformed into a dress. i was just brainstorming on how touse this long skirt to use when i had a sudden idea. so i just went with it, and viola!
the necklace I made here.
A. No, it doesn’t have a lining. You’ll need to wear something underneath like a slip because when you hold up your arms, it will show a huge chunk of your sides. I wear a spaghetti strap tank dress under it that’s similar to a slip.
Q: It looks too good to be true. I wonder about the waistband and how it lays so perfect. What size skirt would I buy?
A: More important than the size of the skirt, I would first try on the dress around my neck and see how the waistband falls around your shoulders and neck. If it falls nicely, no need to change anything. If it’s too loose, you can sew one side of the skirt smaller(no need to sew two sides since the elastic waistband pleated skirt has no center/sides/back really. If it’s too tight, find another skirt.
Q: How long was the skirt when you started?
A: It hit my ankle bones when I had the skirt on regular. You’ll need an ankle length or longer to have the outcome as shown above. If you don’t mind the length shorter, go for it! I think it’ll be adorable shorter.
I’m entering a design contest and I’m very excited. I would like to thank my beautiful and talented friend Gloria for taking her precious time to draw the final piece below. I wish I was as talented so I could’ve drew the whole model and colored the other sketches I did.
This dress is beautiful, simple and classy. I love the classy style because it is timeless and appeals to women of all ages. The waist again is placed on the tiniest part of the body, thus creating a most flattering figure. It is 100% cotton so that it can be worn on a dressy occasion like to a wedding with some high heels and fancy jewelry or can be worn casually with some flats or pumps. This dress has pleated pattern in the middle that starts from the neckline down to the bottom of the dress. The dress will have two options for colors: a clean light blue or a bright orange-ish red. My inspiration for this dress came from just thinking what dress would appeal to many women of different ages and to many styles of women.
This one I cannot take credit for the design for I have a dress very similar to it which is where my inspiration is from. But I got so many compliments on the dress and I wished I had one in black, so I might as well add it to my design list. A girl can never have enough black dresses!
The dress is black with lace on top and 95% cotton and 5% spandex on the rest of the dress. The lace top and the dress is all connected, thus a one-piece dress that has a hidden zipper in the back. It is a round neck with a beautiful antique-design lace. I couldn’t quiet draw the lace the way I wanted it to and it looked a lot better in my head. The dress is slim fitting all the way down with a emphasis on the waist and the skirt line hugs the legs a little thus creating a hour-glass looking figure. Match it with some black stilletos for a very polished, sophisticated look.
