About My Dress
A commercial pattern
Blackpool Cherry Stripe
Time To Create:
1 and a half days including fitting time
Dress Influenced By:
I really wanted to design a fun dress that someone would actually wear to a wedding or the races
Nicole was just the girl as she loves a girly party dress with a difference!
I hand dyed the cotton lace to overlay on the belt and also made a matching hair or waist piece to compliment the look.
The whole dress is stiffened in a lightweight shape well to give it the girly, Alice in Wonderland type feel I wanted.
Thanks to Nicole and Tanya Ewen from "the tanya way" photographic studio in Mt Gambier. Her photos are number 1,2,3
Tanya has worked with Nicole before and was excited to translate my designs and Nicoles style into some gorgeous photographic artworks.........so clever.
