Stall's in 2 weeks! Probably enough time to order a batch of professional clothing labels but I'm a bit of a cheapo, apologies, and I bought this label-tape (the kind that mothers use to label their kids' school clothes) instead. Hopefully they don't wash out and people forget where and who they bought these dresses from! :( Last time I had a stall, I didn't have clothing labels or swing tags *slaps self* I'm such a bad businesswoman. Anyway, I'm in the process of designing my swing-tags now. Yay, fun font times!

evolution of a dress

Inspired by collections from Chloe, Lover, the 70s, flower children and rocker girlfriend Anita Pallenberg I designed, drafted the pattern for and pieced together this dress. It's an a-line tent shaped frock with a scalloped hem, fitted bust darts, flared crochet-lace sleeves and a kind of key-hole back. It took several hours spread across 4 days to complete. Unfortunately I mismeasured the length of the dress so as you can tell, it's a little bit short! I think I'll wear leggings underneath it or maybe flared jeans if I can op-shop a pair. I edited the movie with iMovie '09 and shot the video with my Panasonic Lumix camera. Apologies for the poor quality and for going overboard with effects and text haha it was my first time!
