Blue and white

Monday, June 10, 2013

I was looking through an Anthropologie catalogue a few weeks ago and saw this dress.  Now I recognize that my dress doesn't look much like the dress from Anthro, but the idea spoke to me and I decided to make this dress.  I drew a little preliminary rendering, but then decided that the sleeves were ugly... Puffed sleeves are an ugly look on me.

 After a few modifications and some advice from Adam, this is what I ended up with!  It should be a great dress for summer!  It is a good length, it has sleeves, and it is thick enough not to have to wear a tank underneath it.  Love that!  

dress: made by me; necklace: gift; shoes: gift from Mom; belt: target (similar)


  1. Wow! I am super impressed. I really like it.

  2. So pretty! This week we'll have to go find some awesome fabrics at the fabric district so you can make more great summer dresses!

  3. That is a fabulous top on that dress! Some really great sewing skills at work here. I'm also pleased to see you are getting good use out of your fashionary book!

  4. That is incredible and what a talent to be able to design and create from scratch that way. Envious of that skill!

  5. That is beautiful! You're so talented!

  6. Wow this is so feminine and cute :)
