Frida, New pattern release and sale.until 10/11.

New dress release by
Designer Stitch

I have been admiring everyone's Frida all week long. An opportunity to be creative, that's all I can say about the Frida.

Recently I had the privilege of testing the "Frida" dress/tunic/top, for Designer Stitch. We were given us the opportunity to be creative with the Frida and use the original artist Frida Kahlo, as an inspiration. I saw the movie, Frida, to get inspiration and to understand the artist better. I wanted my Frida to be Mexican inspired to were to Latin events.

My Fabrics.

I found the white embroidered fabric at Hobby Lobby, it was ripped in several places. I was able to get the manager to sell me the beautiful embroidered fabric at a great discounted price, this became my base for the Frida dress, I was able to sew all torn areas, then I looked for my trims. D.S. gave us many resources to look at and to come up with our own ideas. There was a lot of color, embroidered fabrics, lace fabrics, etc. I chose to use the white cotton, embroidered fabric, for the dress. I then found a colorful flowered embroidered applique that I sewed on. I was so inspired by Frida and wanted a Mexican, Bohemian, vintage look for my dress. 

Frida comes in various lengths to choose from and sleeves as well.
