Baby in Golden Daisy

In clothing, dresses on 18 March, 2010 at 11:24 pm

I look to make clothes for normally sized people that flatter assets and hide liabilities, using clever designs and more than a few tricks of the eye.

This is a very simple babydoll dress made out of local cotton twill; my own design and pattern. The fabric comes from the da Gama company, who make the better known shweshwe fabric. This just caught my eye, and I can’t seem to get enough of the big happy golden daisies.

For this dress, I chose to use the failsafe empire line, with gathering under the breast; this is a gentle finish that adds bulk to the bust, while making the area below look slimmer in conrast.

This dress shows a bit of cleavage, and again uses the empire line.  The dress is knee length, and best of all has inset pockets which are big enough for a cellphone or keys.

Delicate cotton lace finishes off the neckline and the armholes, and the dress is fastened with a zip at the back.

I currently have this dress in this fabric available in sizes 10, 12 & 18;  they’ll go up on etsy, and I will be making it in other fabrics soon.
