Soft Circle Skirt Dress


My latest off the rack is the first one-piece that I have done in a long time.  Now that I’ve started using full length zippers, one pieces have more appeal as they can be taken on and off easily.

This skirt on this dress is a full circle skirt designed to be worn with a tutu or crinoline underneath.  I’m eager to see how this dress dances and hope to sell it soon.


First Semi-Custom

This was my first attempt at a semi-custom and it was successful.  Semi-custom is defined for me as a customer choosing basic colors and style and then I design the dress based on that and make it to the customer’s measurements.  I give the customer first right of refusal if they don’t like the dress and then sell it as an off the rack.  Thankfully, the customer loved the dress and it fit well.  It is pictured below and I can’t wait to see it on the dancer.
