Señorita Dress


Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!! Today I'll be sharing a special dress I made last year for my shop.
It was inspired by my Mexican roots and an often worn accessory the sarape. This is by far my favorite design! I instantly fell in love with the fabric from the moment I laid eyes on it. The fabric was so festive and bright it made me feel happy inside.

When designing the Señorita dress I wanted to do a lot of fabric manipulation. For the Bodice I played with directional lines, creating a chevron effect. I think matching the lines right was crucial otherwise it would have looked so wrong. When cutting out the pieces I had to cut one piece first and do line matching making sure they would be mirrored. It was time consuming but well worth taking my time. The bodice was fully lined with a light blue lining.
I knew I wanted a showstopper for the back, I went for a back cut out. As you can tell by now I love having fun back details on my designs. For the back I had mirrored vertical lines with two cute wooden buttons. The wooden buttons added a great touch to the back of the dress.

 For the skirt, I decided to have the lines go horizontal so that they would stand out once it was pleated. I did a blind hem to keep the stiches hidden and added an invisible zipper. I really loved the way this little dress came out.

I had lovely Julia model the Señorita dress. She looked so gorgeous in my dress. Seeing the complete look on her was an amazing feeling. Here are some pictures of her modeling the dress!! Hope you loved this design as much as I do.

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…
