M Missoni inspiration

I will be making a maxi-length dress sort of like this M Missoni design soon.....

M Missoni Melange Knit Top  My version will have shirred insets at waist, shoulders, and cuffs, though.

Let's see....  Maybe I will use white crinkle rayon.  Or white cotton.  Or......  ?

The labor for this sort of dress would be about $200.  Let me know if I can plan to make one for you!  You will choose the fabric(s) and you will specify all the details.  FUN.

Lacey's One Dress Protest is up to Day 275!

Lacey has now worn her dress every day for the past 275 days!  The great hemp blend twill dress I made for my client in Texas last summer is Lacey's One Dress.

Read all about Lacey's One Dress Protest, and see how the dress is holding up with only 90 days remaining.

One Dress; she wears it every day for one year.

Thanks, Lacey, for the update and for sharing your insights and reflections!

A design that failed. .NOT.

Well, I at one time I feared that this design had failed.  The delightful customer for whom I made the first one in this style ended up not wanting it to be a jumpsuit; she had it made into a top and pants set!  She had had to have some changes made to the fit (this happens from time to time when I work with clients who are at a distance!) and elected to have it remodeled as well.

But no failure!  The jumpsuit I had made for myself in order to work out the design worked perfectly for me.  I have worn it about a thousand times over the past year and I love it more all the time.

I listed this jumpsuit in KathleenTempleTailor (on Etsy).  Click HERE to see the specifics about the jumpsuit as a custom creation.  I am eager to make more of these great jumpsuits!
