These can be made to be formal or more casual at whatever length you require. The average price is $250, this will change dependant on detail and amount or type of doilies used.
Dresses can be made both short and long and many different combinations of colours and styles. Generally when I am making a dress it is the doilies which help to define the style of the dress. I pin dresses and then leave them to check to see whether the placement of the doilies is appealing. The dress is made with a petticoat which can be attached to the dress or the dress can be sewn independent of the petticoat, which allows you to change the look of the dress by using different coloured petticoats under it. The dresses that I have photographed are ideas as I may not have these particular dresses available to buy. If you wish to order a dress please provide your measurements and the colour and style that you like. Please also look at the other doiley garments for ideas about colour combinations that could be used for a dress. If you would like your dress for a special occasion and would prefer to have the dress fitted, if given enough time I can generally arrange to visit and do a fitting, if you live in Victoria or NSW. The cost for fittings is $50.
These skirts come to just on the knee. The length is dependent on the petticoat used to line the skirt. The doilies are attached to the petticoat. This is a selection of the short skirts I have at the moment. They are priced at $90.
These are longer and would come down between the knee and ankle. They are also attached to the petticoat. They are priced at $110.
These are a few long dresses that I have made recently. Long dresses suitable to be used as wedding dresses can be seen in the wedding section. The long dresses are priced at $400, but this would change dependant on detail and amount or type of doilies used.
