Dress Making

I must admit that my interest in art does not end with photography. I have always been into all the 'craftsy' things like drawing, painting, and some ‘domestic arts‘ like knitting, crotcheting and sewing. The latter has occupied some of my free time lately, along with numerous trips to the local fabric store. I am including a few images of my latest creation below. When I came across this fabric I knew I had to have it. It’s so feminine and so gorgeous I immediately thought of Michael Kors‘ floral dress from his Fall 2008 collection (yes, a little past season but very flattering). My dress isn’t an exact replica but an inspiration of the above. I am definitely not a master at this and have not been trained at all but somehow I managed to put it together and I think it came out nicely (just don’t ask me for the dress patterns- none exist ;-). I am thinking of taking up some sewing and design lessons in the near future.

This dress is the third one I am adding to my do-it-yourself dress collection =)
Now, off to looking for my next inspiration.... Ciao!
