Sorry the blue dress is not uploading maybe the size is too large.

This one is a fushia pink party dress.

Blue floor length dress with ankara waist band. The idea was to make a curved band that would look like a belt. The dress has front and back peep-hole at the neckline.

YES, we do Lycra too. I know most people are weary of sewing Lycra but i think its such a sweet fabric. no need for lining and usually wash and wear. If you cant get ball point needles, your best bet is to run a stick of candle along everywhere on the fabric your needle would go. It works like a charm for me.

Lycra dress 1: Cowl neck knee length dress with gathering detail on both sleeves.

Lycra dress 2:

Anyone who sews would know that once in a while, you come across a clients fabric that is so lovely you wished it was yours cheesy. this is one of those fabrics.

Its a black, heavy lace lycra. Its covered in lovely pink embroided roses. The client was going for the vintage look. Its a sweeping length with a see-through panel at the cleavage to the waist.

This dress is an oriental styled full wrap dress.

I used 1 and half yards of patterned chiffon for the upper part and and almost 3 yards for the lower part. I must say the client nearly knocked me over hugging me when she saw the finished dress.

That's the joy of sewing to me, the smile on my clients and students faces when projects are completed.
