Denim Shirt Dress

I’ve been loving the denim look I’ve been seeing everywhere lately. Last summer I grabbed a few metres of this lightweight and slightly stretchy denim from the remnant bin at Fabricland and held on to it like a small child clings to a blanket. Just kidding! But I did mull it over for awhile. What was I going to make this pretty heathered fabric into? And voila! Denim shirt dress!

I added a front patch pocket to give it a little detail. There is white top-stitching around the sleeve hem and pocket too. For the hem of the dress I added a little extra weight by doubling up a separate piece of fabric and binding it onto the hem. And then the white top-stitching again.

I love the simplicity of this dress and I think it can be accessorized in so many different ways! A great belt some days? and maybe some big jewelry?! Yes please.

I like the versatility of this dress for being wearable in different seasons. It will layer up nicely in the fall with some tights and a cardi.

Cristy – The Best Wo-Man!

Cristy

In today’s world the lines of friendship and gender are no longer firmly drawn. Many women have male best friends and many men have great friends who are women and they want them included in their special day. This was one wedding that proves just that!

Working on Cristy’s tuxedo was so much fun. The girl has so much style and stood up to the challenge of looking fantastic and fashionable in her suit right down to her Jimmy Choos.

For Cristy’s outfit we took the sleeves off of her dress shirt, saving the cuffs for wearing. When she had the jacket on you would never know there were no sleeves underneath.

A few more alterations to the shirt and jacket to make them more flattering and feminine, adding some curve, then we cropped those pants!

The results were awesome!!
