Shabby Apple Design-o-mania

Though I love being a graphic designer—really LOVE LOVE LOVE it—I have always is secretly wanted to be a fashion designer too. Maybe it's genetic since my mom's degree in fashion (so awesome). So now I finally get my chance! Here is my dress design for Shabby Apple dresses. Shabby is having their yearly contest and I am officially entering. I combined two of my favorite things; retro silhouettes and big floppy cowl necks. The best part is that this dress can go in a classy direction or funky. check it out:


I could totally wear this to the office. And who isn't crazy about a great purple these days? Or:

A nice conservative silver with a hint of color dip-dyed in the hem. Buisness on top party on the bottom. Wow that sounds unnecessarily trashy. Martha Stewart Living just did a story on dip die though so we know that can't be the case. That cowl allows the dress to be worn a number of ways and I've always thought there is a serious shortage of elbow length sleeves in the world. What do you guys think?

Oh and it has pockets! I almost forgot the pockets! Big ones that you can actually fit your phone in. And because that 40's skirt is so full nobody will ever know! Ha! Got the rest of you unbelievers. No one can resist good pockets.

Sadly no one will ever be able to wear this dress. It seems that Shabby Apple only likes things covered in ruffles...

Jess--you are amazing. I love the dress and I think if Shappy Apple doesn't snatch it up, we should make it ourselves. We can use Marth's instructions and dip dye it too!

I'm in. Whenever you and your mom start up that fashion biz just let me know...

I'll take a dip dyed version, please. Size small.
