Meet My little Princess


I know I know it’s long overdue. I’d like to introduce you to my little princess Vanessa. She is 8 months already oh how time flies if only there was a way to freeze time! She was born on April 17, 2014 and weighed 5.15lbs she was sooo tiny. I love her to the moon and back. I’m so bless to have her in my life; she brightens up my day. She is something I tell you; I can already tell she has a BIG personality. She has her diva moments but over all she is a very good baby. So here is her first photo shoot she’s only a week old here and yes I just had to have her in a tutu and tiara lol. (Hubby was like noooo she’s going to get used to all the glam stuff)

 
When we first found out if she was going to be a girl, everyone asked if I was going to make her little dresses. I of course was thrilled with having a girl and was already envisioning her closet full of my designs! Well I didn’t get started right away since there was so much to do to prepare for her arrival and not only that there’s this thing called LIFE that tends to get in the way. As a result of that I had no access to my studio to sew away. It was ok considering my family and friends gifted her with so many cute little outfits and dresses. I’ve had a blast dressing her and taking millions of pictures (memory soon to be full:-P) I finally have access to my studio, it’s a bit upside down at the moment, but I can still manage to make few things for her. Yeye!
I drafted some blocks that I can later on modify for different styles. Here are two designs I made for her.

 
 
I made her few leggings loved the tribal print knits very unique.


 


 

The second design is my favorite because she gets to have her little black dress lol. Can someone say “Breakfast at Vanessa’s?”  I will definitely continue making her more baby clothes. A girl could never have enough clothes am I right?

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% …

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…

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 f…
