For My Mom (Part 2: Execution)

Over the weekend, I finished making my mom her dress. Oh man, the length of the skirt came out short! My mom is a little shorter than I am so hopefully the dress will look longer on her. Crossing fingers!

Dress made out of silk crepe back satin.

Messy?? Imagine it 2x worse than this.

I put gathers along the center front because my mom tells me that's her most sensitive area. I listen when she speaks! :)))

Time for my next project......

  1. awww so pretty, you should design a mini collection with this dress as a starting point. It will be good for your wardrobe and your portfolio. I wish i have the motivation and resourced to make some clothes for myself too lol.
