Happy 4th of July to all those in the US! I really hope everyone is enjoying their extra long weekend! I'm sorry for the lack of posts lately. I just couldn't decide where I wanted to go with the design of this project, so I left it alone for awhile. It's a very 80's long-sleeved, button-down number equipped with bulky shoulder pads. I was immediately drawn to it because it reminded me of this Versus dress. Similar right? I've noticed this particular color scheme of blues and blacks in bold prints and patterns on the runway. It's edgy and rock & roll to me. I eventually decided to cut out the shoulder pads, chop off the sleeves, bring in the skirt just a tad, and the hem up a few inches. The end product is a edgy little vest dress. I love the double collar and how the slanting lines of the bodice pop against each other, don't you? The fun after shots were taken in front of an old, broken down double decker bus that's parked near a local bowling alley. I hope you enjoy! -C.C.
