For New Years, I wore a turquoise mermaid dress that I created this past summer. Over the summer, I attended a one day sewing class at a fabric store in New York City. The class was started and taught by Dominique Galbraith who is owner and creator of her amazing fashion brand, D.Auxilly. In this 5 hour class, I sketched, cut and sewn this exquisite mermaid dress. This dress consists of 2 fabrics, stretch polyester and sequined/embroidered fabric. I designed it, so that the sequin and embroidered dress started a few inches above the hip, so it looks like the solid fabric flows nicely into the sequined and embroidered fabric. Like music, the details in a garment should flow in a way that it is illustrating a nice melody.
Creating this dress was tons of fun and I learned so much throughout this process.
Blessings and Love,
