This year I decided that, ground sweeping maxi dresses will probably not be in the cards for me. I've been dragging around, closing my car door, getting my heels caught and tripping over these elongated hemlines for a few years now. I'm not the most graceful gal and I've literally fallen UP stairs from my feet getting caught in my dress. And with the temps already dipping into the mid 90s with high humidity, I just don't want to be swathed in yards of fabric this summer.
So when I have the desire to wear a longer length, it will be a midi hemline. I can still get the same coverage and flowy, without adding to my clumsiness!
I love this dress so much! Y'all already know how much I LOVE details and design elements. And this "simple" black dress has a few! Notice the cut-in shoulders... lace insets at the waist and an exposed zipper! I'm addicted to those things. I know one of these days, I'm going to wake up completely out of the blue and be totally over them.
Wearing: Vogue 8900. See my original review of this dress!
Please bare with me, new sewing is coming. Life has been so busy these days -- hence the reason I've actually had to get up and get dressed! But I currently have a project cut out on the sewing table. Now if I can only find the time and muster the energy! Pray for me!
OMG Erica the shoes! Where did you get your shoes!?!ReplyDelete
Really cute dress. Love the peek-a-boo! (secretly wishing more women learn that hints are sexier than bare.it.all. nakedness!)
Praying your mojo hits full gear! :)
Nakisha, they're Jessica Simpsons from about 2 years ago. And I totally agree! Thanks!Delete
I agree with Nakisha. Your creations are sexy without being vulgar, and always Classy. I think you should be styling a lot of the Stars.ReplyDelete
Two words: Do You! Seeing the repeats (and good ones IMO) only makes you human. You always look great!ReplyDelete
This is wonderful. I love maxis but I've fallen UP a couple times. The car door thing happens frequently too. I love the lace insets. LOVE IT!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jazzy T!Delete
Wonderful proportions! Love the length.ReplyDelete
So classy. The necklace is lovely too!ReplyDelete
I just love the cut-in shoulders!!! But do you make special adjustment so they don't reveal to much by accident?ReplyDelete
Definitely made adjustments. I had to add a very large bust dart. Thanks Catherine!Delete
Those shoes look amazing with your amazing dress!!!ReplyDelete
You look amazing Erica!ReplyDelete

Can't wait to see the new project, but I have also enjoyed the recaps so to say of previously made garments. To see how you keep updating the looks is inspiring.ReplyDelete
