I usually naturally go for sleeveless dresses, whereas Aya added cute cap sleeves. Aya also included PIN TUCKS and pleats...pin tucks is a technique that I had not incorporated in any of my previous creations, because I find it hard to master and time consuming to make! I'm just too lazy to come up with these on my own, so I'm glad this project helped me to advance my skills:p
Pin Tucks on the hem were bad, but Pin Tucks on the sleeves were even worse, because I had to sew tucks on curve. I had to try it a couple of times to get it right.
I decided to go for a solid color to make this dress so the pleats in the skirt and pin tucks stand out more, instead of using my favorite pattern, floral print.
By the way, I love Aya's hand drawn design sketch! I like how the drawing of the dress includes the girl's head, with hair :)
Now the dress is available in my shop for made to order:)
