My October Dress

I’m super excited to unveil this dress for you guys! October is one of my favorite months because of Halloween, where dressing up every year was something I loved doing. Halloween was an integral part of the reason I love designing so much, so suffice to say, I wanted to go all out.

This dress was a result of a challenge I made for myself where every aspect of it was something I had never done before, basically a dress of firsts. I had never made a ball gown before this dress and I had never embroidered anything before this dress. So, really this dress was a huge challenge because I had no experience in doing the things previously mentioned.

I also linked the video below.

My September Dress!

So, as mentioned before I started this monthly dress series and today is when I’m posting the very first dress in the series.

So my inspiration for this dress was that because it was September, which is my birthday month, it had to be based around styles that I liked. I’ve always appreciates putting modern takes on older styles and so I did that for grecian style dresses that I’ve always appreciated.

I’m linking the video down below and I’m sharing a not-so-secret, secret. When I first made the dress, I was about to edit the footage to make it a time-lapse compilation. BUT, I accidentally deleted all the footage. I freaked out and you’re probably wondering how I still have a video for this and this is because after I accidentally deleted it, I ran around like a crazy person attempting to ‘recreate’ the video and I only had half an hour because I was about to leave to go to a friend’s house. So I was running around and basically made two dresses. While the first one took 3 hours the second took, well, half an hour.

So, the video is linked below.

behind my monthly dress series

Hey guys, it feels like it has been a very long time since I’ve sat down and wrote for you guys. So, what I wanted to talk about was, if you follow me on Instagram, I’ve hinted about something called #TheMonthlyDressSeries and it was created by Leanne Barlow, a fashion blogger, where every month she makes a new dress. So, I was ultimately inspired by her series to do my own version of it. I’m going to be kicking the series off on September 1st.

I decided to start designing again because it is something that I love and I know that I’d regret not honing my talents while I still have the free time to do it. I will definitely be posting about each month’s dress on here with the time lapse video and photos along with my inspiration for each design.

I do have to say that while I already have my September and October dress completed, I still worry about whether or not I’ll have time to make my November dress. But, I’ll get it done sooner or later. Hopefully sooner.
