Dresses!

Now, i know these aren't the most glamorous photos in the world - but let me introduce you to my dresses! I'm feeling a little bit proud right now. So much hard work went into getting these prototypes done - but i'm ultimately excited to keep doing this and hopefully sewing some dresses or skirts for you dear readers in the near future.

(Simply send me a message if you would like to order one! caitlin.shhh@hotmail.com.)

Textile design and sewing by yours truly.
(Oh, and i must add - i accidentally didn’t order enough fabric, so that’s why the print on the last two skirts finish early and theres a white gap. whoops! Won’t be making that mistake again.)

    1. Thanks Ailsa. My plan is to get all the other dresses in a similar shape - i just didn't order enough fabric for the prototypes. whoops!

  5. Oh my gosh! I want one IMMEDIATELY! The cuts are so lovely - and I adore the sweetheart neckline on the swan dress. The dessert/biscuts one is my favorite though. Great work!

    Let me know if/when you do start selling them! Though hopefully if you start selling them you'll have enough fabric to make one that's a little longer for lil' ol' 5'10.5" me or else my butt might hang out a bit...

    1. Thanks Elizabeth - will be sure to let you know! The skirt lengths won't be overly short on the dresses, so i think you'll be okay!

  21. I kept wanting to tell you on Tumblr that these are all so beautiful! I am absolutely positively not allowed to spend money until my trip to Canada, unfortunately, but I shall have to tell everyone else to buy one when you start selling so I can live vicariously. I think you've done a great job. :)

  25. Hi, I'm quite new here (I haven't even started blogging yet). I just wanted to say that these dresses are adorable because of the simplicity of cut and uniqueness of the fabric. I like the biscuits and eye-patterned the most, but they all look amazing. I hope to see more in the near future!

    Already yours, Julia
