Blue Dot Swallows

This custom dress was made for a friend in Mexico! Fussy cut fabric to feature the swallows in the center of the bodice. Sweetheart neckline, gathered skirt and pockets.  This fabric is a cotton sateen, a more flowy fabric. dsc03021

Blue Floral dress

This fabric is a beautiful vintage style cotton designed by  Gretchen Hirsch – one of my favorite seamstresses/bloggers! High neckline, cap sleeves, soft pleats and pockets are the pretty features of this dress. I just love this print and after the dress sold, I made some shorts for myself out of the extra!DSC03029

Japanese Seersucker dress

My client picked out and bought this fabric on her own- which is definitely an option if you see a fabric you absolutely have to have!! It is so gorgeous, and we made it into dress with a v-neck, cap sleeved top and  side pleated skirt – with pockets of course!  I also made a matching fabric covered belt- not pictured. I get so many compliments on this one but can take zero credit for that fabric choice- it’s lovely! img_9697

Telephone Dress

This client wanted a curve-hugging silhouette, with different coordinating fabrics on top and bottom. After scouring our local independent fabric shops, she’s now decided she wants 2 more dresses! Fine with me. I made her muslin, and adjusted some areas that always bothered her with ready to wear dresses. She’s happily reported that she wore this dress out dancing without having to do any tugging at it like she usually does! I love the fun fabrics she picked out- wait till you see our next collaboration.. img_1091
