The sort of...Balmain sleeve inspired dress....
Today's musings include two African print dresses.....sleeves sort of inspired by the balmain shoulder look....I had to use shoulder pads for these to give them edge. They have zips on the side so wearing them is not a hassle (ps: zips are tricky little pies) you have to be really careful while stitching them on especially if you are using a sewing machine. I wanted to accessorize the hem and collar on the blue dress but I thought not as I am giving the wearer the option to accessorize it with jewellery, belt etc as the pictures will reveal...(ps: my mannequin is like size 8) so don't be alarmed and think the dress wont fit...it will do...and I can always make different sizes. The pink print dress is really exceptional... i think ...reason being...I have hand sown gold plates (accessories you can get from a haberdashery) on the collar. I think it gives it edge(PS: my other half mentioned this to me and i totally ignored him however i realised the effect was uber super. The dress can also be worn with the low cut at the back or the front...whichever suits you.....
