Wow! Its been sometime since my last post. But I can assure you guys that I wasn't just being idle.
Nope... on the contrary, I've been working, working, working. It had been a while since I posted some of my designs so I had to get to work on something spectacular.
This is the dress that I'd like to call the Mustard Pencil Dress with Tie and Dye African Print Band.
Mustard Pencil Dress with Tie and Dye African Print Band by Zoharous
Styling by Belinda
Sandals by Local Cobbler
Necklace (Stylist's own)
Doing this piece was really fun and exciting even with my amateur sewing skills. The fact that I got the chance to blend this very foreign cotton fabric with the Tie-and Dye African Print strip gave the dress some diversity. No matter how much love I have for this dress, I can't keep it so it's already on sale in my Etsy Shop. See how I described it in the shop,
"This mustard colored pencil dress by Zoharous has been crafted from a cotton fabric. The details include: a round neckline, sleeveless styling, a plain mustard fabric with a tie and dye contrast fabric wrapped around the bust-line. The dress has been cut with a form fitting style..."
I think I'm finally getting the hang of it... For this look, I had a lot of inspiration that and made this a very confusing choice of styling.
The pencil dress like the pencil skirt is an outfit that flatters a woman's curves and give an hourglass shape. So the only tips I have for taking control of this look is
"Just rock it!
... and don't forget that these dresses always look amazing with heels"
