This is a 50’s style mini dress that appears like a dress and bolero but is really one piece. It has a high collar, 3/4 inch sleeves with turn-up style cuffs, a sweetheart bust shape and Black inserts in the skirt section. The Black fabric can be poplin, cotton or poly-stretch (only slight amount of stretch) fabric. The length should be mid-thigh. I’ve drawn it in Red, Blue and Black jacquard/brocade to show different options.

Same as above except I changed the fabric to leopard print, pinstripe and polka dot to show alternative options.

This is a cute and smart jacket in soft/comfy velvet with satin trim. The main body is velvet and the hip section and cuffs are ruched satin and cuffs have lacing. The jacket closed with hook and eye closures. The back of the hip section has a tie-up long bow.

Same as above but in cotton pinstripe and satin trim.

 Hope you like them!

Jacket with White faux shirtfront, bow tie and 3/4 turn-up sleeves. The main body is either polka or pnstripe. The buttons on the front are functional and White for the Polka versions (drawn in Black for illustration purposes only) and Black for the pinstripe version. The buttons on the sleeves are decorative. The jackets are hip length and peplum style/cut.

An all-in-one dress that looks like a skirt, jacket and blouse but this saves the trouble and expense! The dress has a White faux shirtfront with White bow tie, peplum pinstripe faux jacket layer with White turn-up 3/4 sleeves and matching pinstripe skirt section. The dress has functional buttons down the front which are Black and decorative ones on the turn-up sleeves. There should be a small slit at the back for ease of walking.

Same as above but with polka dot/spot top and plain bottom.

Polka swing dress with faux shirtfront, bow tie and functional buttons down to the waist (the buttons are White but just drawn Black for illustration purposes). The sleeves are 3/4 length with turn-ups and decorative White buttons. The sash belt is White and detachable for perfect fit.

This dress comes in either Black/White stripe or Black/Grey pinstripe fabric and is in swing style. It has a faux shirtfront with bow tie and 3/4 sleeves with turn-ups. The buttons on the front are functional and the buttons on the sleeves are decorative – all buttons are Black. There are sewn on belt sashes on the back of the waist that can be tied for the perfect fit. The belt sash pieces are made of the same fabric as the dress and are only sewn on to the back, the belt cannot be seen on the front of the dress.

Hello all! 😀

Blazers are all the rage and great for layering during Spring to Fall. I thought I’d make a more feminine, retro and two-in-one version of the classic boyfriend blazer. It has a faux shirtfront attached to it in either polka or pinstripe, which buttons up like the jacket and has a pussy bow tie-up at the collar. So basically this jacket and blouse like coverage but can still be worn with a top underneath. The polka or pinstripe is also on the roll up/turn up sleeves. The jacket is fitted at the waist. I hope and imagine this as both smart and dressy.

This dress benefits from both the pencil and swing skirt silhouettes. It has a faux shirtfront in polka or pinstripe and tie-up bow at the collar (pussy bow blouse style) and buttons down to the waist (functional buttons) to make it easy to take off and put on whilst looking formal. The ‘upper/over’ plain colour layer then billows out a bit over the ‘lower/under’ layer which is in pencil style. The plain fabric is shorter than the pattern fabric. In reality it is all one layer sewn in sections but it gives the illusion of a double layered, more expensive, two-in-one dress. I think this way will be more wearable and comfy though with coverage yet coolness due to the turn-up sleeves and knee length. Overall I imagine it can be worn for both cuteness and smart wear.

I love both retro cut out shapes and peplum and Im glad to see that both are making a big comeback in all fashion shows this year with peplum staying strong from last year and cut-outs becoming more popular. So I decided to incorporate the two in the classic pencil dress to make a saucy yet cute little black dress of my own (though it can really be in any colour). Sleeveless, wide collar, mid-low narrow rounded neckline, fitted waist, heart cut out at the back, peplum hips and pencil skirt section. The dress fastens at the back above the heart cut out. Small slit at the front with a faux small button above it for detail/decoration.

This is a cute and smart top/jacket for warm weather and can be worn as top underneath something else in cold weather. It has a sweetheart neckline, cute puff sleeves, button up front and a detachable belt that you can tie as you like e.g. in a bow or long sash style. Both the top/jacket and belt are forest Green (or other satin colour) with Black trim. Black buttons. The fabric or both the body and trim is satin.

This is a cute and fun top/jacket for warm weather and can be worn as top underneath something else in cold weather. It has a sweetheart neckline, cute puff sleeves, button up front and a detachable belt that you can tie as you like e.g. in a bow or long sash style. Both the top/jacket and belt are floral with Black trim. Black buttons. The floral is cotton but the trim can be either satin or cotton.

This is a full length skirt with the benefit of both long skirt coverage and mid section accentuated shape due to the over layer in wrap/tulip style. Both layers are attached.

This one is for those occasions when we feel we just have to free our legs and walk as fast as we want to but in a skirt lol. This should be above the knee and have a very small slit at the back which should not reach past the back tulip point/’flap’ and for the taller ladies the back detail should act as coverage just in case the skirt is very short and the slit a bit worrying. Contrasting colours Black with White trim but could be any colour combination especially as colour blocking is such a popular fashion style.

This is a longline waistcoat/vest for good fit, coverage and accentuated shape. Rounded/angular double breasted collar, overlapping front, detachable belt, hip length with the front being longer. The back is not angular, it simply goes right round at hip length. The buttons are Silver tone.

Fashion Sketches

I was just cleaning up My Documents folder (you know how it just fills up with junk we save and then forget we have lol) and saw two of my old designs. Since I haven’t posted them in any format on this blog, here they are as part of a post.  As you can see, I was enjoying the bubble (and tulip) shape when I drew them in Summer 2010. I think they would still be relevant and wearable, what do you think?

 

Satin bubble coat with reversible and detachable caplet. Ruched sleeves at the wrists and functional pockets on the hips.

Cotton or Satin bubble skirt with small bows in matching fabric but different colour down the back. Button up at the back of the waist and a small slit for ease of walking.

Tip – This dress was a prototype meaning that only 2 or 3 were made, one for auction, one for the model to wear and possibly one for the designer if they chose a prototype of their design rather than prize money. So this is truly couture! There are limited edition designs available every week at auction and throughout the year Chicstar will occasionally release/put the prototypes worn by the model up for sale at a discounted price so if you missed out at auction, are a size US4/EU36/UK8 and are fast enough with the checkout you can catch them then!
