Custom Designed Dress

Here's a dress I designed for a customer from one of my markets. She's bought dresses made from repurposed sweaters before, and told me to design what I thought would work well. When I found the two sweaters that make up the brightly colored panels of the skirt, I knew I was onto something.

Next to each other I would never have thought of them in one skirt - but then I looked at what Rebecca said: to use royal blue, teal, yellow - and realized that between the two sweaters, we had all those colors.

Pretty wild prints, no? My girls say it looks "So '90's"! Hopefully Rebecca likes retro.

This was a great experience for me, as I've not made a dress from the sweaters before. The real test will be to see if Rebecca likes it!


  1. I like it! But now I feel old, since 90's is retro...

  2. Wonderful article, thanks for putting this together! This is obviously one great post. Thanks for the valuable information and insights you have so provided here. pastel wedding gowns
