CURVY STATEMENT- DIY 2nd Summer Dress Project: Chic Nautical Sophistication

                                               This dress project is a little different for this season because I made 3 different kinds of dresses.  a little plain and chic for the 1st two projects. I have an addiction for florals , loud, vibrant colors and prints but change is good right? so the1st is the LBD with a geometric cut at the hemline. 2nd is a very nautical dress that I redesigned according to my taste. Stripes has been a very attractive linen print for years and it is quite difficult to make it work for plus girls because it might flaunt curves in the wrong way   ( depending on the body shape) . This is quite challenging but I was happy with the outcome.

                                                   Ribbons are really girly and sweet. I incorporated ribbons in redesigning an old dress since i don't make patterns yet. So I decorated it on the micro mini skirt part of the dress. I didn't remove the triangular facing of the dress since it is unique. It used to be a 3/4 sleeved midi A line dress. I am not really a fan of midi dresses so I decided to use every cloth in redesigning.

I just played with cloth folding and never expected that I would enjoying constructing ribbons around the skirt. 
                                                Here is the output. I just designed it in such a way that it would suit my body type (hopefully) . I paired it with Dior Pumps, Zara hand bag and GS Sunnies.

Sorry, is the skirt too short? I resourcefully used every inch of cloth that I have.

 So what do you think?

                                                 Tell me your comments about this dress project.  Don't worry I'll take it constructively. Anyway, this is just an experiment like what I did to other dress projects. I know that there's a lot more that I have to know in dress making. The projects are purely made out of love and fun!

                                                  The 3rd dress project will be posted soon. Thank you for taking your time to visit y page. Always remember, Think Big Think Beautiful!
