About My Dress

Pattern Used:
My own design

Fabrics Used:
Poppy Seed Snow 100% cotton - Poppy seed black 100% cotton - Ocean Snow 100% cotton - Roman Supper 100% cotton - Lappi White Spot 97% Cotton/3% Spandex - Black Pool Black Stripe 97% Cotton/3% Spandex

Time To Create:
about 3 weeks - including many hours spent hand sewing!

Dress Influenced By:
I was inspired by glamorous 1950s beach babes, black & white fashion worn on Derby Day at the races and the trend for unique vintage fashion!

Additional Information:
I was so excited by the amazing selection of spot & striped fabrics at Tessuti's and couldn't wait to get started on this dress! After experimenting on my mannequin I decided to create my entire dress from hand sewn fabric "yoyos" allowing me to mix and clash all the different spots and stripes and create texture! The contrasting striped straps and short length give the dress a modern feel - it's the perfect dress for a day at the races :)

HUGE THANK YOU to Tammy for modeling & Jysla Kay for taking the awesome photos :)
