These blue dresses were made for my junior high school classmate and her younger sister. My friend ordered the Self-Conscious Girl’s dress from “minus the sun, night all day.” collection (left) and her sister ordered the Suicidal Girl’s dress from the current “It rained into her room.” collection (right). I couldn’t wait to see the two dresses worn together so I called my double for the photoshoot, thank you Photoshop.
My friend liked the style of this dress but also wanted the moon embroidery from the Controlling Girl’s shirt dress from the same collection so I combined the two. I suggested making the dress in light blue as she likes pale colours and it will make the moon motif obvious. I used different cotton fabrics in a similar colour for each section. The hem and the shoulder straps are done with cotton ribbon.
I have a different plan of using a few colours for the final version of this style but decided to make it in one colour for my friend’s sister, just to be safe. I’ve chosen blue cotton again to go with my friend’s dress but in a dark enough colour so that the skirt won’t be see-through. The collar has cotton ribbon trimmings and the small breast pocket is hand stitched in a teardrop shape. The fabric covered buttons are made in a slightly lighter colour.
