Spring Fashion Illustration

Hey fashionistas, here is the second collection for this mini-series Flash Back Friday Fashion Illustrations. This collection is for spring, I was inspired by graphic fairies. The fabrics consisted of lightweight chiffons to give off a romantic vibe. The color pallet is purples, green, pink, and blue. They are all dresses, because I felt that spring is the perfect time for dresses.

The backstory of my spring collection: my girl is a fairy who lives in a beautiful garden. Since the garden is full of greens and colorful flowers, her dresses are also green and colorful giving her the ability to blend in whenever she feels like she’s in danger. Since she flies from place to place her dresses have to be lightweight.
 
The first dress is purple chiffon, with the skirt having under layers of blue and pink. The straps are rope like twisting towards the back shoulders. I styled her with what I thought was fairy like hair, and the make-up was dramatic with swirls. The accessories were very minimal along with strappy heels.

The second dress consists of chiffon fabric both in green and a swirl multi-color. The design is an empire waist short dress with two layers, the straps are off the shoulder, and the hem has interesting points. This one to me really gives off that fairy look. I styled her with a sideway ponytail, and curly hair tips. I gave her a semi dramatic make up because her hair was already the focal point being that it was orange. Thinking back about movies I’ve seen about fairies they live in the garden, surrounded by greenery and flowers I decided to incorporate a leaf necklace. I also added matching color strappy heels.

 The final dress is hot pink chiffon. For this design I did a tiered dress with fine ruffles. The neckline was a sweetheart shape with a braided single strap going at an angle. I wanted the hair to mimic the strap therefore it was also braided with a Gwen Stefani signature loop curl. The make-up is very dramatic with a bubblegum lipstick. The heels were also dramatic with straps that went up her calves.



Material used: Pencil, prisma markers, prisma color pencil.

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…

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…

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 …
