Dressmaker of the Year Awards Finalist 2018

We are thrilled have been selected as a finalist in Dressmaker of the Year Awards, hosted by Make It Today – Dressmaker Magazine. The dress was part of the occcassion category for our pale blue silk evening gown. The dress was originally designed for Erin to wear to the 2017 Deakin Law Society Ball hosted at Crown Pelladium.

The design was sketched up after some serious sessions on Pinterest to bring together the elements. The bodice was drafted ourselves with toiles made to ensure final fitting before cutting the blue pale dupion purchased from Clegs (now sadly closed but stock acquired by Rathdowne Fabrics).

Constructed in two main parts – a straight strapless dress with an over skirt, the hem of the over skirt is adorned with a combination of vintage lace, existing and hand made flowers each hand sewn onto the skirt.

The belt was made by Buttonmania and bag purchased from Maude Studio with earrings from Little Core.
