Pink Cotton Candy

Added Nov 18, 2011

Melbourne, Austr...






A deliciously sweet affair with Vogue pattern 1176 by designer Michael Kors.

The vintage sweetness of the dress’ silhouette and the cuteness of the bow makes for one big dose of sugary goodness. Combine that with pink shiny cotton fabric and white lace trim and I’m in girly heaven!

The colour and cuteness of this dress reminds me of cotton candy and so I couldn’t rest until I found some (and stuffed myself silly with it).

The instructions were a dream and the result delightful, but sewers beware: the bodice sizing is all over the shop! A muslin first is a MUST.

    Your creations are amazing. You have an excellent sense of style and awesome skills. Seeing your version of this dress actually convinced me to purchase the pattern (the bow detail looked a little tricky). I love how unapologetically girly this dress is :)

      Thank you so much! The fairy floss was delicious and sickening all in one, it reminded me of going to festivals as a kid. Thanks for your comment :)
