Belle Inspired Dress

Ever since they announced the new Beauty and the Beast movie, I was excited to go see it since this is a classic Disney movie that I grew up watching. I really wanted to take my daughter and share a little piece of my childhood. She had already seen the cartoon version, so she was very familiar with Belle. She is a huge fan of the Disney princess, she can literally name them all. I thought it be cute if she wore an inspired Belle dress to go see the movie. I thought long and hard how I wanted to design the dress, because I didn't want it to be too overly done. My initial thought was lace but I really wanted her to be comfy while watching the movie. That week was pretty hectic to go fabric shopping, luckily I remembered I had a soft knit fabric in my stash!!

I wanted a modern take on the Belles dress, still keeping the classic yellow, and off the shoulders look. I quickly drafted the pattern pieces, which included an off the shoulder front and back. Before cutting the off the shou…

Red Bow Dress

If Mondays have you feeling a little blue, well you're in luck. I've got a red dress that will brighten up your day. In my previous post I shared with you one of the Valentine's day dress that I designed. Today I'll be sharing the second dress I made! If you must know I've used peachskin fabric multiple times and I have to say it has become one of my favorite fabrics. This fabric is soft, the texture literally looks like a peach skin lol, and it drapes beautifully. When it comes to Valentines day you can never go wrong with the classic RED dress so I went with just that.


The design was a bit similar to the previous one, with the bodice being a princess neckline, the skirt being gathered. However, the back of the dress was a showstopper if I don't say so myself. I made a fun cut out and adorned it with a nice big bow.

When in doubt put a bow on it.
I finished the hem with a delicate rolled hem and installed (yes you guessed it) an invisible zipper. Along with…

Heart Cut Out Dress

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I popped up on here! I've been crazy busy being a momma, wife, and a Etsy shop owner. It has been quite an interesting journey, very different from custom designing. I've learn so much these past months and I am continuing to learn. Hats off to you if you are a Boss Mom it takes a lot to run a home and a business!


I'll be sharing with you all some of my Etsy designs with you all incase you don't follow my social media or Etsy shop. Since we are still in the month of February I'll be sharing my Valentine's day dresses. I made two designs for my shop the first design is the Heart Cut Out dress.


For this design I wanted a fun focal point, I decided a heart cut out on the back would be cute. I started drafting and making a muslin sample I had to tweak it a couple of times because getting the heart shape wasn't as easy as I had thought. After three attempts I finally got the heart shape that I was aiming for. The fin…

Pleated Floral Dress

This past Easter I wanted to make my daughter her Easter dress. I knew exactly how I wanted the dress to be basic bodice and box pleat skirt. I don't normally buy pdf patterns but I was short on time and the design was already available. I decided to purchase from Mingo & Grace the pdf pattern is called Blake. It is an amazing pattern it features basic bodice, racer back, box pleats on the skirt, and hidden pockets.
Beautiful close up detail of the dress.
I used a heavy twill cotton fabric which added shape and volume to the box pleats on the skirt. I omitted the hidden pockets because my daughter doesn't know about pockets yet. The bodice is fully lined and I used an invisible zipper. If you haven't noticed by now but I'm obsessed with invisible zippers they add a hint of elegance to the garment. The hem calls for 2" inches but I thought that was too much so I decided to do 1" inch hem. To keep the conceal theme going I decided to do a blind hem. Since …

Floral Gray Knit Dress

 Hi guys, just stopping by to share with you my latest make. I love seeing my daughter in comfy knit dresses. I stumbled across this gorgeous gray floral fabric and I knew I had to make her a knit dress. I went a head a drafted a basic bodice and for the skirt it would be a gathered rectangle. I measured her waist and multiplied it by two to get a beautiful gathered. Both the neckline and the armholes are bias bind with the same fabric. This was a fast and easy dress to make. Best of all she loves pull over dresses that are comfy yet stylish.

Here she is modeling her latest.
She is a free spirited and this dress lets her hop, twirl, and even run!

My little bunny!
I'm considering adding this dress as part of my shop, keep a look out for it. Thank you for stopping by. Make sure to visit my Etsy shop here.

XV Dress

A few months ago, I had the privilege of designing a quinceaƱera dress, with a twist. The dress itself was simple, it consisted of a sweetheart neckline with 1" inch straps and a circle skirt. The twist to the dress was, that it had a character hoodie jacket. If you are familiar with the Regular show, there is a character by the name of Mordecai. He is this blue bird with a Mohawk hair do.
This is Mordecai.

This costume was part of the inspiration, we mainly focused on the jacket. The jacket was going to be longer instead of a bolero. The fabrics would be more luxurious satins. It was very important to get the character to look a like as well as making him 3-D. I've done quite a few character hoodies in the past for Halloween costumes so I knew this would not be hard.
I began by marking my style lines onto my dress form. I generally like the draping method better than flat pattern. Once I've draped and marked my muslin I transferred the pattern pieces onto paper. 

He…
