Another New Item!

Electric Blue Flange Zip Dress with Vintage Trim

When I found this synthetic silk fabric, the color was so vibrant and fun I knew I just had to make something fun with it.

Thanks to the cloudy Dublin weather, the photos are a bit blurry, but I created volume with three flanges at the shoulder in front and back.

I kept it short and flirty! This one was really fun to make. It also looks so adorable with a top underneath, like a jumper. And as a special treat I put in pockets! so useful!

New Item!

Silk Dress with Sash and Hook/Eye Closure and Button and Lace Details

I bought this silk fabric at the famous Mood Fabric Store in New York city a couple of years ago at fifty-five dollars a yard! I just now completed the garment I started with it. Made with a size ten dress form, I think the finished product came out much larger than a size ten, so you'll want to look at the measurements for sizing.

The cap sleeves came out how I envisioned, and the neck line is low low LOW, so I think if the dress was worn with something lacy underneath, it would coordinate with the lingerie feel of the hook and eye front closure. I put a sash on the back so that it could be cinched in a little at the waist.
