Fall Fashion Illustration

Happy Friday everyone, here’s another edition of “Flash Back Friday Fashion Illustration.”  This is my fall collection, coincidentally just in time for the fall season! For this collection my inspiration was JLo, specifically the music video “All I have.” I really gravitated from her hairstyle and the make-up. Again I really wanted to incorporate separates. The fabrics I chose were velvet, polyester, tulle. The color pallet was soft pink, soft blue, browns, and gold.

The backstory: my girl is in her mid-20, she doesn’t let the chilly weather stop her from wearing her miniskirts.
Design number one: she’s wearing a velvet short puffy sleeve keyhole top with a pleated skirt. The skirt has suspenders and tulle underneath to give volume to the shape of the skirt. Her top is a turtle neck with an attached scarf. Her accessories include long gloves, knee high socks, paired with ankle booties. I decided to do the hair and make-up like JLo’s music video.  

Design number two: she’s also wearing a puffy sleeve keyhole top. The only difference is the keyhole is bigger, which I had to incorporate an underneath camisole. I paired it with another pleated skirt with inverted v hem. Underneath the skirt she has an exaggerated bustle, (which I’m not too fond of it now). Her accessories include leather gloves, JLo’s signature floppy hat, high thigh stockings and ankle boots.

Design number three: yes, she’s back again “Blue Gal,” she’s wearing my favorite of all three an interesting jacket. The jacket: shoulders are puffy; bottom of the sleeves is pleated, it has lace from the biceps ending at the elbow. The front it is corset like with cups. It has a pleated peplum with tulle underneath to give volume. The back is exposed by the oval shape cut out. I paired it with velvet trousers; the sides have gold piping and knee patches. She doesn’t really have accessories because the design is already too busy. Her shoes are high knee leather boots. So you’re probably thinking there’s nothing JLo about this one, but there is, in fact take a look at her one more time. Ok so it’s not too obvious, lol I decided to pose her like this to show off her voluptuous butt. You know since JLo is known for that lol.


Material used: Pencil, prisma markers, prisma

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 …
