Where it all began, the shirt dress.

I thought I would take you back to where it all began, the shirt dress. I did this dress right back in the beginning of my experimenting with clothes. It was for my sister Adelle. It was my first attempt at draping on the dress form so I was really happy with the outcome, and especially the lining I made for it and the neat hand stitching on the inside (Mummy will be proud of me!!)

It is made from a mans business shirt  and has a bit of prettiness in the lace details and a bit of personality with a skull stud (my sister’s signature symbol). I haven’t had the chance to do any more experimenting with shirts again yet which will definitely have to change as Summer approaches as I have so many ideas for them.

A whole collection done from men’s business wear is calling me I think!

The pictures really speak for themselves in this one so I will leave by thanking my gorgeous sister Adelle Cousins for the

photography and her bestie Sheradin Dinsdale for the modelling.
