Today I will be featuring this beautiful dress from EricDress an online clothing store that offers affordable and fashionable clothes.
First, I want to talk about the quality of this dress. It is a very well made dress the quality of the fabric is beautiful. It also includes a self-tie belt but I prefer to use a contrasting colored belt to give the dress a pop of color. Second, this dress is in the size Small but to me it is more like size Medium or size 2. The armholes and waistline are big I will have to take that in. Lastly, is the shipping it took 2 weeks which is not really bad they have good shipping rates.
Finally I completed the zero dollar challenge I am doing for this month. I am very impressed how this challenge turned out, I updated my wardrobe just by updating old clothes that I already have. Simple and straight forward alterations and perfect for beginners too. You can use your old clothes as a sacrificial fabrics to learn how to sew.
I hope you all liked this challenge and I encourage you to do the same!
This is the third Zero Dollar Challenge I am doing for this month. The idea is update my wardrobe without spending any money. So I had been shopping in my closet looking for old clothes that needed some updating. This long sleeve shirt is actually my favorite not only because it is gray because it is very soft and comfortable. I decided to shorten the sleeves since I wanted to give it a new look and I also added a small pocket on the front. I used a plaid fabric that was a left over from a previous project.
This is probably one of my favorite sewing project I have ever done, not only it was so easy it also did not costs me anything. I owned this dress for about five years now but I haven't wore it that much. The reason why is the neckline was deep for my taste ( I dislike scoop neckline) also sleeveless requires me to wear a cardigan over it, in Texas summer & humid heat that is not going to happen.
So finally today I had this aha moment, transform it into an off the shoulder dress. The ruffle will be enough raise the neckline and will provide sleeves how brilliant?! Watch the video tutorial.
Today I will be talking about this beautiful dress that was made to fit me perfectly. I was blown away by the quality of this lovely dress. They have hundreds of dresses with different varieties for all ages. I picked out this dress in the bridesmaid dresses section where you will have an option to use your own measurements and pick out a different color.
This dress is fully lined and it also has a built in bra. The color is amazing I must say true to the color swatches they provide on the website. The process to order was very easy. If you decided to use your own measurement. You are just going to fill in the measurements they need, they also provide a guide how to get you own measurements. You will need a tape measure in hand. I will suggest to add 1/2 to 1 inch on the waistline so you will have breathing room. But if you desire a perfect fit no need to do that.
It took about three weeks to make this dress keep in mind this is made to order. So if you are ordering for a big group of ten bridesmaids be sure that you have plenty of time. Do not make an oder two weeks before the special day. The shipping was really fast I got an email from them saying they sent out the dress, next thing I know it was in my door step later that afternoon. I wasn't so sure if it's going to be like that to all of the customers.
I really love the pleated detail on the bodice and on the waistband. The v- neckline is very flattering and not super deep it still looked modest which I really appreciate.
Added vintage buttons on the shoulders.
Cut out a bow and vintage button right at the center.
I updated this plain black dress that was just sitting patiently in my closet waiting to be updated and love again. I like how it turned out even though the back is somewhat backless it is still modest enough and very wearable. The vintage buttons was just the right touch on the shoulders as well. In this tutorial I will show you how to do an invisible stitch. A hand stitching technique that I like to use to finish my projects.
