I have such nice picks lately and I love working on these new projects. The way I create dresses, I can not be a populist and go ahead and create what is simply popular no matter how trashy it is in terms of looks, creativity, fashion etc. I have to be inspired to create a new dress and for me to be inspired I have got to be doing what I love doing, what I think worth doing.
Anyways, I have picked very beautiful vintage dresses lately and wanted to work on them. Some of them are already posted in my web site and some are awaiting to be even worked on. I love giving new life to old dresses, old things. And sometimes, I simply create another old, vintage fashion dress out of an already vintage dress. And this project is one of them. Let’s see it.
This is my up-cycled design of 1980″s dress! The fabric is cotton blend , color is light coral , light beige and light orange tones- very summery, fun and yet somewhat conservative ! I removed the puffy sleeves , to open arms and make this very pretty lace collar on the font a focal point ! The dress closes on the front with white buttons , light wright and flowy – this dress has a belt that tights up on the back ( or u can tight it up on the front as well ) in a generous bow ! Very nice feel of vintage 1980″s deign ! The waist area also has an elastic stretch to it .
