It's not something I usually do, I mean I won't make from scratch a new design just for one person, but I can alter one of mine to make something that will suit a special occasion!
I just finished these:
Here, I altered my Goblin short jacket (no hood, shorter sleeves and no closure in the front) and made a coordinated mid-length skirt, in patterned upholstery fabric, with vintage rhinestone buttons. It will be worn with one of the new summer tops, but not the one on the picture, instead it will be pink silk and that same grey patterned fabric as the rest of the outfit, with a zip closure.
The other one was a lot longer to make, and necessitated dress shipping back and forth to England! here, I altered my strapless bustier dress design to make a backless one in silk and voile. Here was the first trial in cheap fabric:
I'm eagerly waiting for the pics of these two outfits worn!
Phewww... And what am I going to wear for my cousin's wedding??? I'll have at least two days to think about it after I come back from holidays.. ;o) You know, shoemakers are the ones with the worst shoes ;o)
By the way, I'm going to the north of Poland, so if anyone wants to recommend a place to visit, I am all ears!
And in the meantime, thanks a lot to those who participated in my "poll" concerning the summer tops:)
i think i'll make more of the pink and blue ones then :)
