The perfect Tea Party Dress is called ‘Crushed Cream and Flowers‘ luxury that’s comfortable, coupled with sophistication is what you will feel when wearing this dress.
I also think of her as a dress that can be an ‘alternative wedding dress’ especially if having a wedding on beach. This particular style of a floral jersey dress looks good on hourglass figures, it plays with your curves. Crushed Cream and Flowers a jersey swing dress by combining two different textured jersey fabrics was such a treat, the overlay of the dress is a floral print, the sheer fabric with its variety of coloured flowers in bloom captures the light making her quite ethereal.
The crushed cream jersey fabric, the under-lay, serves three purposes, one your modesty and two it lifts the flowers, and finally the fact that its crushed gives another dimension to this dress, and did I mention that the fabric is so soft, well she is. At the hem I came up with a technique that looks as though you have tiny little flowers sashaying across your legs creating a lettuce edge effect.
A roll neck collar also in cream jersey to create a contrast, and drop shoulder creating a sleeve cap. I like working with the silhouette that a jersey swing dress creates as she compliments a variety of body-shapes. If you decide to have this dress as an alternative wedding dress, you will still be able to wear her many times afterwards for other occasions; with each wear you capture the memory of that ‘special day’, alternatively you could wear Crushed Cream and Flowers as a dress to wear to a Tea Party! An ‘Exclusive Original’ label the only one made in this fabric, a stand-alone piece.
‘Eastern Promise‘ is a dress that promises, you will be noticed! Let’s face it, a kaleidoscope of colours, lime greens, yellow, turquoise blue you are going to stand out. Initially the print reminded me of the artistry from Emilio Pucci renown for his geometric prints and bold detail, his work still carries kudos today.
Adding a touch of the Orient with the dramatic flared sleeves, or as I like to say my Kimono styled sleeves, if its a chilly evening you can place your hands in it’s opposite, all in keeping with its unique look the non-conforming jersey dress! The neckline a ‘v’ neck great for your bust-line, compliments a variety of face shapes. The contrasting bustier made in shiny black faux snake-skin is finished with suede ribbon for the mock-tie front with metal eyelets, the purpose of which is to accentuate your silhouette just like a corset from back-in-the-day, only with comfort and no fainting!
Tapered lined mini skirt, a wonderful way to show off your legs and stunning shoes to match. I see Eastern Promise as a Party Dress statement dress, that makes her presence known, worn by a woman who is adventurous, dynamic and full of fun. An ‘Exclusive Original’ label part of a capsule collection, the only dress made in this fabric.
A dress called ‘Happiness‘ because that is exactly how I want you to feel when wearing this 60’s style floral jersey dress. The fabric from Italy, the print is described as being on par with Mexican Talavera pottery. She’s bold and bright, I can see her being worn with a big floppy hat, accessorised with a patent leather coloured clutch bag (I think yellow would look quite nice), quite outstanding for a day at the races.
Looking at the abstract exotic flowers, set on a crisp white background, does it look to you, that the print is raised creating an almost 3D effect? In order to capture the big green flower that sits on the shoulder, the sleeve had to have volume, the only way to do that, was with a dramatic statement that is the Kimono sleeve. Voluminous sleeves create a powerful look and silhouette allowing the dress to have a continuous flow. Hand-finished detail using couture sewing techniques, the tapered skirt and basque are lined in white for structure and support.
I also think this floral jersey dress would look great on a cruise ship holiday, Happiness is part of a mini capsule collection, there is a top made in the same fabric which can be viewed at my studio. This jersey dress is an ‘Exclusive Original label’, which means there is only one for purchase.
Party dress, garden party dress, cruise ship dress, take your pick; this exotic jersey floral print dress, named ‘Xanadu‘ has you covered. The vibrancy of this print is a throwback to 60’s psychedelic art when everything was groovy baby! A big choker necklace, or lashings of long coloured pearls is what this dress calls out for. The long sleeves have what I describe as petals at the sleeve hem, each piece is cut separately, but others might say its a ruffle hem. The shaping of this dress is all about your silhouette, with her a fitted basque, she cinches you in above the waistline for comfort, a flared long evening skirt drapes beautifully skimming your body.
Rather than have set-in sleeves, the shrug detail which falls into the basque is beautifully comfortable, coupled with fabric that is so soft to the touch. Strong jewel, floral colours of royal blue, hot pink, orange, red, set on a fuchsia pink background. The basque of the dress is lined in purple mesh which gives additional support and structure. ‘Xanadu’ is a maxi dress that I would say is a style statement, an ‘Exclusive Original label’ a stand alone piece, the only one made in this jersey fabric.
