This Handmade Beauty Needs A Home

dress: handmade by me out of vintage fabric   shoes: f21   belt: thrifted    necklace: thrifted
Since I’ll be starting school for fashion design in January I’ve been brushing up on my sewing and designing skills, turns out it’s totally like riding a bicycle, you can never really forget (thank heavens!). So for the next couple of months (and hopefully beyond that!) I’ll be making lots of handmade clothes from my stock pile of vintage fabric and before I sell them in an online store I want to give you guys the chance to give them a new home. Here’s the first of many, it’s made out of a vintage fabric that I found thrifting a while back and the second I found it I knew that it had to be a dainty feminine fifties inspired dress. It is a size 29-31 waist, and a 32-36 b in bust. If you want it email me at woohoo4sarahatyahoodotcom, I’m selling it for $50. If it doesn’t fit you have no worries, there will be lots more dresses coming in all sorts of sizes and they’ll all be made out of one of a kind vintage fabrics. If you really REALLY want a dress shoot me an email and I can make the next one in your size!

  8. Holy smokes, that dress is breathtaking! You did such an amazing job. Can't wait to see what else you put together! I'm lucky if I can sew a hem, so it is always great to see other people make homemade pieces.
