Teenagers tend to have big ideas. My niece has really big ideas. So, I should have known her inspiration for a hostess dress for one of her teachers' wedding was going to be way over the top. I don't have the exact picture but it was similar to this.
Now I'm a sucker for her so I began to work on all those layers of ruffled fabric. Then, I got tired. I decided to revamp that dress completely and make it fun and flirty. That's more like her personality. I created a simple high low sheath with a tulle ruffle hem. She loved it.
My other little sweetie asked for a high low circle skirt with a lace bodice. I started by created a strapless bodice. I then created a boatneck tunic with an extended neckline. Attached the strapless bodice and boatneck tunic at the bottom. Then, I connected them to the high low circle skirt. Voila! A dress is born. She loved her dress too!
Two down, one to go. The last dress is for a really critical client. She's never satisfied with anything, ME! This isn't my best work because it was created in 2 hours after I realized I didn't have anything I wanted to wear to the wedding. It's a simple cap sleeve sheath with a low V back and a pleated mermaid bottom. It was fun to wear. I wish I could have done more.
So here are the dresses!
