Here are some new designs I’ve recently been working on. They are both of darker colours as we are leaving the sunny season soon and enter into Autumn. They are both halter neck dresses with full circle skirts. The dress on the left is made from black and white striped fabric, with the bottom half being plain black with a white satin band running round near the bottom edge. Finished with a gorgeous red satin waist band. The dress on the right is made from pink and cream flowers and butterfly cotton fabric on a navy blue background. The top half is made from black cotton and has a waist band from the same fabric as the skirt. The back of these dresses are elastic in gypsy style. The neck line is a sweet heart neckline finished with cute little bows. In the photos the dresses are worn with petticoats but the petticoat is not included with the dress. I love these fabrics, the right one has a bit of a steampunk direction. It’s also possible to make the waist band in other colours if you wish. I’ve planned to make more designs from the black and white stripes. I love the striped bustle dress Christina Ricci wears at the end of Tim Burton’s film, Sleepy Hollow. I’m thinking about making this for my Halloween costume!
The pink, blue and black dress would fit perfectly into the rockabilly scene. The fabric is imported from England and I find it unique and fresh!
These designs are tailor made. If you’re also looking for a unique design of your own, please get in touch!
