Hello everyone! *Waves enthusiastically* 😀
I had a great response to the first set of my latest designs which can be seen HERE and are still be voted on. I had some requests to make a version with a shorter length for more everyday wear and you can see them below. I hope you like them!
All of these designs are entered in ‘Competition 1 – submitting original designs’ at chicstar.com and if you like them or want to see what other people are saying click the pics and maybe vote. You can also view my past designs by clicking my name on any of the ChicStar pages.
Many of my new designs utilize custom prints submitted by members for the Print Competition, there are many gorgeous submissions to choose from!
Remember there are many awesome designs submitted to Chicstar, and we’d (designers) love your feedback.
This dress has the benefit of a formal yet dressy full length blazer style coat, over a cute/hot mini dress. Sexy whilst smart and with coverage. The dress buttons up at the front (matching buttons on the cuffs), as seen on the outer layer (on the bust there should be discreet hooks), that way the dress can be either stepped into or put on over the head. In terms of fabric – the sweetheart bust is a faux bust, it’s not a full top underneath. It’s just two front pieces sewn to the inner side of the ‘outer coat’ to make it look like an inner layer. This way it’s all really one layer and doesn’t get hot. The skirt is sewn under the the seam for the peplum section, that way there won’t be more than one visible seam. The lower section of the coat dress is draped. I would like shoulder pads if CS has them, I think they would add to the formal basis of this design and keep the arms straight as well as wide enough for those concerned about their upper arms. They could also be easily be removed.
Next post – edits of my boho maxi dress 😀
