Dress Design for Shabby Apple Contest

I love Shabby Apple's fashionable and modest dresses. They are hosting a contest called Dare to Design so I decided to come up with something. 

Here is my dress design for Shabby Apple dresses!

The Sketch

The Inspiration:
I was mainly inspired by one of my favorite tops that has an embroidered netting/lace neckline. So I incorporated that into a dainty and classy Springtime dress. The color choice also came from one of my favorite clothing items in my closet. Here is a look at my inspirations.

About My Dress:
The dress is a coral colored cotton, cotton blend, or cotton poplin. The neckline is the attention getter with a ruffled cream/ivory colored embroidered netting/lace. The dress has cap sleeves with a tiny gather. The waist is featured with a waistband outlined with two rows of cream/ivory cotton. The skirt is slightly gathered at the waist band, has some fullness, and flares slightly at the bottom. 

In Color
I think this dress really would be beautiful once it came to life. The neckline would be wonderful with cascades of embroidered netting/lace. It has just enough personality and is also practical. 

I had tons of fun designing this dress. Thank you Shabby Apple for hosting this contest!

I love Shabby Apple dresses too, but I'm only familiar with their little girls dresses (since I'm a mommy to two little girls). Your dress is really cute. Good luck!
