Vanessa Montoro's Charlotte Dress

I am in love with this dress! What an achievement if I could make one. I tried to scour the net for patterns and lucky enough, I've found some. 

Patterns below are from the ladies of Osinka website.

Vertical Front Band (bodice part)

More detailed pattern for the vertical front band

Openwork X stitch connecting the front band all around front to back

Bottom band from which I think where everything starts..


 I think this is the body of skirt from the bottom band up.

Lacy Romantic Pieces

Here are some of my favorite pieces. Some of them may look quite simple but when you actually make it, it turns out really pretty in real life.

This is my personal favorite. Such a classic with its peter pan collar,  buttoned-down and drawstring detail. Its like all of my favorite details put into one. Love the sleeves too. A bit tricky to make but its all worth it!

My husband and I are celebrating our 9th year wedding anniversary today. This is what I made for him this morning. He appreciates anything handmade by me even with cards. He prefers my own drawings than Hallmark Cards..I thought that is sweet.
