Design Sundays: “Holly Day Dress” on

I thought I’d try my hand at a dress, inspired by both the 18th century and the 1960s.  It’s a winter party dress, heavy wine-colored satin with nice big pleats at the waist, a fitted and simple bodice, and 18th c. style quilting at the hem, about 12″ wide all around.  I submitted the design to, and it’s currently rockin’ at 118 votes.  If you like this dress design, please vote for it, and we’ll hope it makes it into prototyping and production!  Thank you for your support 😀

The inspiration – 18th c. quilted petticoats
