Summer Fashion Illustration

Hey ladies and gents, ya’ll know what today is, Flash Back Friday Fashion Illustration! This is my summer collection; I noticed I tend to do dresses a lot so for this collection I decided to incorporate separates. For the inspiration our instructor told us to choose a current designer as inspiration I can't remember who I chose as inspiration. I just remember the designers collection was young and fun filled with color and that's what inspired my summer collection.

For this collection I wanted to explore different fabrics and textures. The fabrics I chose were chiffon, jacquard, silk dupioni, and corduroy. The back story: My girl is young early 20’s, she isn’t afraid of loud colors or print. You can call her a modern clueless if you will. She loves bows and is a super girlie girl.

Design number one, we will call her the “Blue Gal”, she is wearing a flouncy tube top with straps that tie in the back creating an exaggerated bow. The skirt is a cross between pencil skirt/bubble skirts. I love her hair style and color it’s so cool and the styling is elegant.  At the time I thought who’d ever rock a blue hair only in my imagination and what do you know fast forward to 2014 and you see blue hair everywhere. My fashion forecast was right on point! Her accessories include long gloves, rings, bracelet, big earrings, high knee socks and a little clutch.

Design number two, the “Hot Pink Chick”, she is wearing a very fitted corset bodice, with one shoulder bow strap. Her skirt is an exaggerated bubble skirt. Her accessories include cute strappy heels and a classic pearl necklace. The hair is the infamous “pouf” you know the one Snookie rocked on the jersey shore only its hot pink.

Design number three: “Blondie” she is wearing a tiered flowy top with cups and corduroy capris that ruche at the bottom. Her fun accessories are polka dotted wedge shoes, ring, bracelet, a little clutch, and a bow belt. Her hair is big high bun with a bow clip.

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

 

What hairstyle/color did you like and would rock?

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 …
