I had the honor and privilege to make a garment for one my favorite Fashion Style Bloggers SweeneeStyle. She has inspired me for a long time. Her style is so chic and fashion forward. She can take the most simplistic item and make it into a fashion show piece. She is constantly on my radar.
I love seeing others in my designs, and checking out how they style the garments I make for them. It is so interesting to me to see what a person sees from fashion view point. We can all wear the same piece but style it so very differently and get a whole different look.
The top/dress I made for her was self drafted. I actually asked her what she would like to have made for inspiration, and she sent a pic of a dress that she liked. Off the shoulder is one of her best style aesthetics that she wears often, and wears it well. I love how she styled a similar top on one of her blog posts, so when I thought about making her garment using her inspiration, it came to me instantly.
The top was self drafted and I love the fullness that the doubled ruffle makes. I curved the hem and lengthened it just enough to help it flair a little. It can be worn as both a top and or dress. The fabric is a lightweight denim. She paired it with white Jeans and the most gorgeous heels. Check out more picture of how she styled the ensemble.
