After I recently finished a new dress I made, I wanted to show you how it looks on. Recently, my lovely Mother-in-law gave me this green embroidered fabric that was in her old stash and I fell in love with it and really felt it would pop up against black. So, as I am still trying to develop my sewing techniques and pattern making skills, I figured I would try to do a simple shift dress from an old vintage pattern that I altered and played around with in order to get a decent fit on my petite frame. I'm pleased with the final results, but I still have a lot to learn and I will get there in time.
Below are some style tips on how to wear embroidery this Season!
Items Worn For Today's Look
Shift Dress: My Design
Necklace: c/o Choies
Since embroidery is so detailed and can be somewhat out-dated, it is important to pair it with modern accessories and silhouettes. With this look, I kept the embroidery a focal point, but only added it to the hem area for a touch of vintage. If I had made the entire dress in this print, it would wash me out and also look out-dated. Black is always a go-to for me when I want to make an old fabric appear fresh and modern. You can never go wrong with a shift dress and a statement necklace either and black pumps are always classy and sophisticated. You could wear this look to a wedding, a cocktail event, or to a very nice restaurant and the best thing about this dress is that it is super comfy too!
Hope you all have a great day and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the latest creation.
