I have been looking high and low for a little bday (04.04.14) dress. Something a little sexy, but classy, yet still kind of sassy.

…and it was difficult to find the one that I envisioned in my head with the perfect details, color and fit. Luckily I kind of know my way around the sewing machine and so here she is, this little Bday dress. Since the back was quite exposed, I kept the front very plain and simple (not shown) and the length of the dress long. Rules of thumb for me is to expose only one body part at a time, well if you’re not counting my arms… :)

P.S. I’m debating if I should add this to my shop at KTRCOLLECTION. Let me know if you want me to add, and in what color.

UPDATE: This dress has been added to KTRCOLLECTION and is available now for Preorder with discount code BDAY15 for 15% OFF. The dress I am wearing in this post is a dark gray but I have decided to keep it classic and create the same dress in black for sale…You can see new photos HERE.

Never Judge a Dress on the Hanger

My first impression of this dress on the hanger was “frumpy.” It was loose without any shape and looked almost lifeless. In fact, I wasn’t even looking for a shirt dress with a high low ruffled hem, but when I put it against my body, the silky soft material was the perfect length. You see, finding a maxi isn’t exactly easy when you’re 5 feet tall so I’m always kind of thrill to try on a maxi that might not need hemming.

Well… it was frumpy on but with the bffs: a waist belt, a denim jacket and some accessories, the dress went from drab to (IMHO) fab. Just like a book, you can’t judge by it’s covers, you can’t judge a dress when it’s on a hanger…My accessories and shoes were kept neutral for that boho-chic vibe and I threw in a burgundy (I wish the word oxblood would go away) bag for a subtle hint of color.
