I have been making dresses for a client and I finished them all! This time I made the polka dot Summer dresses, same style but different colours.
I haven’t made anything like these before but I pretty much knew how to. Figuring out how to finish the armholes and hem splits were the tricky parts (I should have taken close up pics on the splits…damn!)
Here’s my “mini collection”!
This is the first one I made which I used as a template for the others.
I had some difficulty about how I would attach and finish the neck tie. I could have tucked in the edges but I liked the rough-ish look, also the former would take longer to execute.
I made this one longer as my client says it’s more elegant, I agree.
I have a smaller size of this one to finish off, its cute on but I’m not sure if I’ll keep it.
This one is my favourite, it’s cute yet spooky looking, like a middle aged version of Kreepsville. This wouldn’t look out of place at a Halloween party (believe me when I say I can make this work!) I may have to make myself one of these now…
She’s ecstatic with these and she’s planned where and when to wear them already. Yes, I am making more dresses for her but I’m having a little break. I may make the odd thing or two for myself though
