New Dresses in Floral Prints.... It's always nice when you can finally see the end result of a lot of hard work. I've finally managed to get together the new batch of Verity Hope Dresses this time made from a variety of prints. This first one is called 'Promenade Des Fleurs'. There are oodles of tiny meadow flowers sprinkled over a forget me not blue background and the fabric is a medium weight cotton. It's my absolute favourite shade of blue and has everything I like in a printed fabric. I only had a little bit of fabric so could only make one. It's in the Etsy shop and I'll be putting all the dresses on the website over the next few days. Next is 'Meadow Bed'. This print reminds me of the tiny flowers scattered over the floor of a wild field. Okay I'm dreaming a bit but I love being around fields and the outdoors in general and love prints that reflect that. It's nice to be girly and the dresses can be dressed down over jeans. Again I could only make one of these but may have enough fabric left to produce a wrap top...we'll see. Next is a very Wintery fabric. It's made from a fine wool. I made two of these in different sizes. Last but not least is the cream of the crop. My Dana Ashley Dress in a floral LIBERTY OF LONDON print. A Dana Ashley is the same as the Verity Hope dress with the three bust darts except that it doesn't have a frill. It's more of a casual wrap over. Some one told me they using theirs as a wrap over in their dance class. I absolutely love Liberty fabric prints. They use bright mixes of colours without being garish. I know a small shop...
New Verity Hope Dresses coming very soon! It's been a long time coming but my new line of Linen Verity Hope Dresses are finally on their way! I have four new colours for the Winter months: a deep blue called moonlight, deep forest green, loganberry and the brown was so popular I've brought it out again but slightly darker. I'm so pleased with how they're turning out. Here's a peak at the Moonlight... The new dresses vary slightly from last season. These ones have higher frills, no bow and the arms are slightly looser around the elbow. I love experimenting with little ways here and there. I'm hoping to get the Moonlight in the Etsy shop as early as this week along with more Bloomers. They'll be available in four sizes: SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE AND X-LARGE and the BROWN will then follow. Size S M L XL Bust 34"-36" 36"-38" 38"-40" 42"-44" Waist 26"-28" 30"-32" 34"-36" 38"-40" Hips 35"-37" 38"-40" 41"-43" 44"-46" I have so much I want to work on including some more Dana Ashley Dresses (a more casual Verity Hope minus the frill) out of some amazing prints I picked up in London last week. Here's one I've just finished which is now on Etsy and on RUSTIC CHIC. It's a size Medium in a soft touch cotton with a subtle satin sheen. We took the photographs locally this time down by the river. I don't know why I didn't think of that location before...the flowers were still out in full bloom in some places and it felt like summer. I'm thinking of incorporating Paypal into the main website to make it easier with the currency and I know I always prefer the familiarity of Paypal. A project on the 'To do list'. Would love to hear from anyone who does use a Paypal...
