Weekend OOTD Post

This is one of the outfits I wore over the weekend, most of the pics came out blurry and crappy but here’s some passable ones.

I am wearing the ‘Fishtail Long Skirt’, which was a one off prototype from Chicstar.com in Black with Red trim and lace up HERE with a velvet faux corset from Camden market and a chiffon bolero from a small boutique I found years ago. The skirt was very long but completely stretchy so very comfortable yet retained its shape.

Fashion Illustrations

Hello everybody,

it’s been quite some time since I posted any designs, that’s because I haven’t been competing but here are the last set of designs I entered into the Chicstar Design Competition 1  for your viewing.

Edwardian Victorian Lace Satin Gown Dress Fashion Illustration Design

Edwardian inspired full length gown with draping on the side, fitted/structured bodice with sweetheart bust. Lace over the fabric bust and panel over the waist for contouring but also over the bare skin of the upper body and arms for a sexy yet mysterious look. Faux pearls and cameo brooch on the front for a finishing touch.

Fashion Design Illustration White Black Lace Gown Maxi Dress

Strapless maxi gown making use of Black/White colour contrasting and accentuating the bust and waist. Lace panel over Black fabric down the front and an attractive yet practical slit on the front side.

Fashion Design Illustration Black Lace Gown Maxi Dress

Variant of the above, this is fully Black but with contrasting fabrics i.e. the main body of the dress would be a cotton spandex or ponte and the trim on the waist would be a matte satin. Again Black lace over Black fabric and a front side slit.

Thanks for looking and I hope you liked them!

Top ‘o the week to ye! 😀

Here are my latest fashion/customer photo entries for Chicstar Competition 3 – posting a pic of yourself or someone you know wearing an item of Chicstar clothing. If you like them please click on the pics, which will take you to their ChicStar pages and why not take a look at the other entries. Perhaps even get involved yourself; it’s a great way of getting discounted clothing, it can be fun and it’s also nice to see the clothing on different people.

Tip – you get $10 for entry into the contest and could win an extra $100.

Retro Black White Satin Polka Dot Spot Belt Long Sleeve Top Chicstar

This is a fun top, I really enjoyed wearing it. The only issue is that it’s very loose and low cut, so if you tie it tightly at the back the open chest is pulled back wider and exposing more so you have to wear a top underneath. Also, when you tie it there’s a lot of extra fabric above the ties especially at the back. It’s ok but you just have to get used to it. I made this pic into a fun montage to represent the top’s retro fabulousness – hope you like it!

Black Jackt Blazer Gold Buttons Nautical Sailor Chicstar

This jacket is a lot more than it seems, the fabric is thick and very soft, almost like faux seude, very nice to the touch and it’s also very smart. The only issue I had with it is that it’s not fitted so even though it doesn’t feel very loose it can look it from the side and back but it’s manageable. The sleeves were a bit long for me so I rolled and pinned them inwards still exposing some of the awesome buttons. Those buttons really add character to the blazer.

The top from the first photo is now discontinued but the blazer is on sale at an incredible $19.95, it comes in Black and Navy and there’s only a few sizes left if you’re interested 🙂

New Design Edits by Request! Part 2

Welcome to part 2!

I also received requests to make my maxi boho dress into a knee length dress, which I did happily – it’s great to fulfill requests and make people happy with design 😀

Knee Length Boho Dress Blue White

The top part is in wrap style, with functional belt. The side where the bow is, should open a little way down the waist (to the end of the White fabric maximum) with either small discreet White buttons or a small zip so that it can be worn by stepping into it or putting it on over the head. The skirt section has two tiered sections. This dress isn’t supposed to be worn with a petticoat, it just has a lot of fabric/sweep which will move nicely when walking, I have just drawn the skirt section fully spread to show the sweep.

New Design Edits by Request! Part 1

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.

Black Hi-Low Hem Coat Dress

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.
