PPR challenge #10 – House Of Cornish

This was the “get down to business” challenge. We had to stick to a tight budget, and create a look that would sell in a ready-to-wear shop.

My dress is a black jersey. It is so simple, and would work for day or for night.
It has a modified cap sleeve. And it would pass JoAnna’s main criteria: “can a woman wear a bra with it?”

I worked hard to finish the dress well. Because there is no pattern to hide behind.  So I am pleased to show you the back, close up even.

While it is a plain dress, it will be easy to manufacture, it is well within budget, and many women could wear this dress. (It is shown very tight here, because the stand that my doll poses on is a piece of plastic that goes between her legs, and adds a certain amount of volume to her rear section, and pushes her legs into a ‘stepping’ position.) The dress actually offers a graceful amount of ease, and even some ruching right around the middle.

Photo shoot and styling assistant credits to the little Miss Thing. Ahhh, what would I do without her? Hard to know.

But any outfit where she can actually pick up the doll without giving me a coronary attack is the sign of a well made look.  I had fun this week. And I am so pleased to have made it to the finals! What an honor!
