Its A...

Hey everyone sorry for my absence, I’ve been neglecting the blog. My mind has been all over the place this year. I haven’t really done much fashion designing this past year. Why? Don’t worry is not what you think….(your thinking I’ve lost interest) well no I love fashion it’s my passion and I have big dreams.
So what has happened then? Well let’s just say I do have a personal life aside from fashion. This past June I got married to the love of my life!! There was a lot of wedding planning involved and I decided to do a few things myself. Some which included; ring bearer pillow, flower baskets, invitations, sash, and my veil. My sister made the most beautiful broach bouquet, I will forever treasure it. I’ll share some pictures with you. The wedding was perfect just like I had envisioned it, so romantic so beautiful.

A month later…we found out we were pregnant!!! We were filled with joy to know that soon we would have our first baby. All I could think about was my baby and I just wanted to enjoy the moment. Not to mentioned I don’t have as much energy as I used to, now I find myself napping or going to bed earlier. I’m seven months now and my belly is starting to show, I’ve been on the look out for maternity clothes only to find myself running out of luck. So I decided to start sewing for myself things that are comfy yet fashionable. That means knits and since its winter it will consist of warm clothes. I will keep you all posted on that.

In regards to my Holiday Collection, it will be postponed until further notice. I think this will be a good time to sit back and revamp Lollipop Couture. I have tons of ideas for Lollipop Couture’s future. For the time being I might post maternity wear and baby clothes, so stay tune.
Which by the way we recently found out were having a…

Behind the Seams I

It's been a while since I've done a custom design or a Behind the Seams segment. Today I will be sharing with you my latest work. A month ago I was contacted by a young lady to design a gown for a wedding she was attending mid April. She sent me a picture of a mermaid dress she had stumbled across. The problem was that she wouldn't be able to get it delivered just in time for her event. I came to her rescue j/k. I met with her took down her measurements talked about fabric choices and any other details.


Here is a sketch of the design.
The design consisted of a mermaid silhouette, the neckline was almost like a racer back. The back was exposed with tiny spaghetti straps. The back skirt had a tiny bustle. The hem had tulle peeking out all around.

The chosen fabrics were red peach skin, red lining, and black tulle. The notions that were used included an invisible zipper and thread.

I generally like to drape my patterns on the dress form over flat pattern. This method seems fa…

LBD Goodwill Challenge

Happy Thursday fashionista's! I've been a bit MIA on my blog lately, but today I'm back with an exciting post. If you have been following my blog for a while then you might remember me talking about Phoenix Fashion Week. Each year they host a challenge, which consist of illustrating your perfect little black dress. They choose the top four illustrations which then you get to bring to life. In which the designers showcase it in Phoenix Fashion Week's annual fashion show. This year they had a completely different challenge.


The little black dress challenge was presented by Goodwill of Central Arizona and Phoenix Fashion Week. You had to shop at one of 67 locations, find a project dress, up-cycle, re-purpose it into your own perfect little black dress. The dresses would then be turned in by Saturday 26, 2015. Which would then be judged by up-cycle expert Angela Johnson. They select the top four designs. Once chosen 25% of the votes would come from social media and 75% …

Heart Cut Out Dress

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I popped up on here! I've been crazy busy being a momma, wife, and a Etsy shop owner. It has been quite an interesting journey, very different from custom designing. I've learn so much these past months and I am continuing to learn. Hats off to you if you are a Boss Mom it takes a lot to run a home and a business!


I'll be sharing with you all some of my Etsy designs with you all incase you don't follow my social media or Etsy shop. Since we are still in the month of February I'll be sharing my Valentine's day dresses. I made two designs for my shop the first design is the Heart Cut Out dress.


For this design I wanted a fun focal point, I decided a heart cut out on the back would be cute. I started drafting and making a muslin sample I had to tweak it a couple of times because getting the heart shape wasn't as easy as I had thought. After three attempts I finally got the heart shape that I was aiming for. The fin…
