I always wanted to be a fashion designer when I was a child. I have done a course in fashion and dressmaking and had a go a designing and making my own clothes. It is really great to have made to measure clothes - especially as I am quite short so a lot of shop clothes don't fit quite right. Unfortunately, I didn't really have the time or patience for pattern making etc and have not made anything for a few years.
Today I found a great website where you can design your own dress and get it made up. You just choose the material ten pick from options for bodice, neckline, sleeves etc. There are only a few options for each but by combing each of the choices you can come up with lots of different designs.
I have had a go and come up with a silk dress in my favourite colour fuscia pink, I think would be great for christmas parties. It's true what they say "This is as close as it gets to Haute Couture in front of your computer".You can also view the gallery to see what others have created and rate it (if you have time to spare!).
