If Mondays have you feeling a little blue, well you're in luck. I've got a red dress that will brighten up your day. In my previous post I shared with you one of the Valentine's day dress that I designed.
Today I'll be sharing the second dress I made! If you must know I've used peachskin fabric multiple times and I have to say it has become one of my favorite fabrics. This fabric is soft, the texture literally looks like a peach skin lol, and it drapes beautifully. When it comes to Valentines day you can never go wrong with the classic RED dress so I went with just that.
The design was a bit similar to the previous one, with the bodice being a princess neckline, the skirt being gathered. However, the back of the dress was a showstopper if I don't say so myself. I made a fun cut out and adorned it with a nice big bow.
When in doubt put a bow on it.
I finished the hem with a delicate rolled hem and installed (yes you guessed it) an invisible zipper. Along with some red metal snaps on the shoulders for easy access to the neck.
I really loved the way it turned out, it actually made me want something like that for myself. My daughter was in total awed when she saw the dress. She was kept telling me, "Me, me, me." Calling dibs on the dress lol. When I started sewing for her she loved putting on the garment, but hated taking pictures. She became a runner and I'd end up with horrible blurry pictures. Bribing her never really worked. I'd end up with pictures of her eating the candy and not caring to show off the garment. I then started recruiting other little models and she knows that. So, now she is more than willing to do cute poses for me and allows me to take beautiful pictures. I'm so glad she is finally coming around and allowing me to be a Mamarazzi I've always wanted to be lol.
So here is my lil lady wearing her mommy made. Which by the way is still available at my Etsy shop as a made to order. It is perfect as a birthday dress, a wedding outfit, a flower girl dress, or any other special occasions. Which Valentines day was your favorite the heart cut out dress or the red bow dress?
