The Story of a Posh Frock
Having a dress designed and made is the affordable dream. For this customer she wasn’t the bride but a guest at a special family wedding who wanted a posh frock for the special day.
Designing 'posh frocks' for family members is a lovely experience to ensure they feel just as beautiful on the wedding day.
This blog I have produced shows you the dress design process from start to finish. You'll get to see how I designed the dress in many different stages, showing sketches and patterns right through to completion.

"Tina is a wonderful designer who made the whole experience a delight. I started my journey with a swathe of silk from the largest fabric shop in Malaysia and just a few weeks later travelled to Italy with just the most beautiful dress for a family wedding.
Together we talked about all of the options that covered using the fabric to it's potential, consideration of the hot Amalfi sun and accentuating the positives of shape and form.
It was great fun and I cannot recommend Tina more highly. If you are looking for a kind, talented and enthusiastic designer, call Tina- you'll be delighted!"
