Dress Design for Shabby Apple Dresses

I am entering a design contest.
So here are some of my sketches for the dress design for Shabby Apple Dresses .

I'm calling it the Obi One Canobe Dress for the obi belt. I would love to see this in red (most definitely RED!) in a natural fiber with a little bit of stretch in it. My inspiration was a vintage dress that I wore out--literally, and I was planning to make a pattern and remake the dress. I made a few minor changes with the waist. Above is me (headless) in the original inspiration.
Wish me Luck!


  1. Wow, what a gorgeous dress. Love the design, the color, the length of it, and also the shoes you're wearing with it -- really nice. Good luck!

  2. That looks great, knock em dead in red!!!

  3. I just found your it...I need all the help I can get...This dress is fabulous!!!

  4. Hey Kathy~I figured it covers most of the ugly stuff and tries to enhance whatever's left! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. excellent pattern and you could do so much with the waist and different belts/scarves.
