New Dress and Design

This is my latest and I think  its my favorite. Its not done yet, it just needs a bow. Its for a client . She needs it for a photo shoot. I know it might seem silly for me to get excited about this, but it makes me smile just to think of my dress in a photo shoot. This design is a little more authentic to the whole rockabilly/1950's style. I love it!!! Look for soon in the shop.

there is still more to come!

I promised more and here it is. This dress is more of a cute little sundress, still totally vintage inspired. Its not quite as spunky as my other dresses. I love the fabric. It was on clearance last year at Walmart for $0.60 a yard. AWESOME!!! I wish that I would have bought more, but back then I had no idea that I would be opening an Etsy shop.

The bodice needs some tweaking. It comes up a little higher than the others and its got a small gather in the front.

And of course a twirly shot.

Well what do you think?

Hi your dresses are beautiful. I found your blog via Crafster whilst looking for ideas for my 22 month old. I'm a total novice but would love to create something like your gorgeous blue polka dot 50's inspired dress - I LOVE it!!
