Description

Is it a curtain?

Is it a couch?

No, it’s my latest dress.

Yes that’s right, I got a little crazy with some curtains and oh boy do I like it!
Who needs shade in the lounge room when there is a new dress to be made!

      Is it wrong that I now want to carry balloons with me as an accessory every time I leave the house?

      Thanks for your comment :)

    It’s minus 10 here, so this is precisely what was needed to bring some warmth. I really like the shoulders/sleeves on this dress, together with the neckline they make it very elegant. The department of the bleedin’ obvious also sent a memo to say that colors suit you :)

      Holy smokes minus 10? I have never experience anything under 4 degrees celcius; that’s cold! Mind you, wearing this dress it pretty quickly gets to 30 degrees; it’s so thick and the moment you start dancing in it it gets sweaty pretty quickly. But at least it looks good!

      Thanks so much for your wonderful comment :)

      A good week ago, it was -20 (at night). I might need to make myself one of your dresses to wear ;)

      Thanks! I’m thinking of wearing it smack in the middle of winter to cheer me up with things go a little grey. I might get a few looks though, x

    As usual, perfectly done. You’re a great seamstress. I have bought some Dupion silk at the upholstery store, and it will be used for a dress too!

      Who doesn’t love a matching prop. I was so sad when the ballons deflated the next day too, I’m a little partial to them now.

      Yellow belt and shoes sounds dreamy! Thanks for your comment xx

      Thank you!

      As soon as I made the dress I knew I wanted lots of colour in the photos. I found a party shop around the corner of my house that sells hellium balloons on the spot. Happiness!

    Gorgeous as usual! You are right, the horizontal stripes actually do you great justice! Your waist is so small!

    Wow this is gorgeous! The dress, the fit, the colours all totally adorable. But I would expect nothing less from you! I love using home dec fabrics for garments the colours and prints are often a lot more fun.
