Discover The Beginners Guide to Making Your Own Dress
How tired are you of going to department and/or clothing stores only to see the same styles worn by everyone else out on the streets. How about the last party you went to and there was two other people sporting your evening dress, only in different colors.

Are you tired of hunting from store to store to find that perfect dress to wear on a special occasion, or that summer dress to sport with your flip-flops? Can you thread a needle? If you can thread a needle you do not have to wear what society dictates what is “in style.”

You can create your image the way you see yourself. What better way to show the world who you are as a person then by sporting a dress you created yourself.

There is a world of fabrics out there waiting for you to let lose your creativity on it. No two figures are exactly alike, yet clothing industries would love it if we just pretended as if they were; kind of like the one glove fits all mentality. That way they can keep stamping out more of the same and everyone can just go around looking like little clones of each other. You do not need to be the fashion industry and clothing manufactures clones.

Some would like people to believe that designing and sewing your own dress is something only expert seamstress can do. That could not be further from the truth. There is no secret seamstress club that only one certain type of person can join, if you can thread a needle and cut with scissors you can sew a dress.

You do not have to wear off the rack dresses any longer! You can make your own fashion statement on the world!...

Inside you will find all the things that hot dress designers do not want you to know. All the secrets to designing the perfect dress for you is inside in an easy to read format. You will learn which fabrics are more forgiving and how to make your fabrics work for you and your body figure. With “Dress Making - Beginners Guide” you will never need to by a dress off the rack again!

With “Dress Making - Beginners Guide” you will find solutions to hide a short neck, or a plumper figure. You will learn which fabrics work best for which figures. You will also learn how to accent the positive and down play the negatives of your particular figure.

And there is way more yet...

Did you know that certain colors make you appear larger then life, while others will make you appear just plain large? Did you know not everyone with red hair could pull off a red dress, however depending on the shade of red hair you have there are ways you can get around the fashion police.



Wear a one of a kind dress that was made to flatter just your figure


1) Allow Your Dress to Reflect Your Personality

You choose the style, design, color and fabric used to create a dress made just for you.

2) The Possibilities are ENDLESS

Guess what? You do not need to use a manufactures made dress pattern to create a dress. You can create your own dress patterns, OR, you can mix or match patterns, copy dress styles and so much more to create your unique dress.
