Its time for another Birthday and we are so grateful to God for the keeping the girls (and everyone else) for the last three years. :)
Ok so I wanted another nice but 'princessy' (if there is such a word) girls for the dress, it had to be long...
At first I wanted to add a pink tulle net to the dress , got the tulle but just couldn't find a matching fabric for the shade of pink I got, so I discarded that idea...
|I'm spinning round and round....|
So I went with this light peachy coloured satin dress with a very nice drape. I decided to add an extra design detail hence the shoulder detail. this was quite easy to do. I took a normal bodice pattern and slash and spread at one shoulder only.
I will be doing a tutorial on this very soon.
I like the effect, idea was from one picture from pinterest, this will also be posted.
Can you see the hem detail in this picture. Horse hair braid was used, tutorial was from Gertie's blog

Overall, I like the way the dress turned out, if you ask me I would say it looks like those Egyptian Cleopatra robe dresses, hence the name 'Robe dress'

It worked OK for me, but I think it could be better or better still practise will make perfect. !!
I wanted the extra flounce or bounce and guess ok.
Decided that since I now make the girls dresses there is no need to make dresses like you'll see in the shops, after all no rules applies to us.
You'll be seeing more 'unusual' lovely girls dresses over here...
Thanks for coming, tutorial to follow soon.
P.S we had a lovely fun filled birthday.
