Confetti & Carnations Belted Dress

A little bit sweet, a little bit sassy: just leave it to a moon-ruled Cancerian to whip up a dress that can handle multiple moods! :] I began this dress with a raw cut of some extremely rad vintage woven cotton fabric, printed with black and white "square waves" and peppered with rainbow-colored confetti bits. Since the fabric represented so much awesomeness, I wanted to design a nice and simple cut for the dress itself, hence the classic pullover shift-dress style. I accented the waistline with a matching belt made of the same fabric, cut on the bias. The navy blue seam binding on the neckline and cropped sleeves are the little details that pull the piece together, and since I had some left over, I also added a pair of miniature handmade fabric flowers, just for fun!

Confetti & Carnations Belted Dress will accomodate up to 40" in the chest and 40" at the waist. It is available for $98 at Mag-Big in Portland.
