Fancy Dresses in the Works
Yesterday I started designing Dasia's formal wear. I'm ultra excited about all the possibilities. The first thing I did was draft a six piece flared skirt. I couldn't believe it actually fit her! The sky is the limit now. Neither of the dresses below are finished. I'm just trying out different options to see what I like. I hope to have some fancy dresses available for sale in a couple of weeks.
This dress has a simple bodice with gold trim. I put the gold trim around her neck just to simulate what a gold choker would look like, if she had one. I may have to make her one. She is sporting her gold heels under the dress. I think she needs a shawl.
This is the same dress but with a netting draped over the bodice. I like the concept, but I think the netting needs some sparkle. I'll have to figure that out. She is wearing her original jewelry.
Nice time to introduce Dasia's rescued dog, Benji.
