Favourite dresses

1sr row L-R: Wikstenmade, Marie Emily, Darling Dexter
2nd row L-R: Postlapsaria, Green Olives Design, Green Olives Design

These dresses are all handmade by the lovely girls modelling them. There's something magical about creating a garment from scratch; specifically to your measurements. This is a skill that I would love to learn one day. I don't have a sewing machine so the most I can do is cut of the bottoms of dresses and skirts (sometimes I get a bit too scissor-happy) and dye clothes new colours. But I dream of making the perfectly fitting dress in a rainbow of colours. These dresses are such eye-candy for me.

I agree - to sew is a real talent ! I love them all ... I just need to move back to a cooler clime where one can wear leggings and boots and sweet wee dresses ... ahhh another two - three years and I should be there - thanks for bringing out my smile today - le

They're all so beautiful. You're right, there is something so wonderful about making garments that are made just for yourself...creating exactly what you want.
