Designer Look for Less: Tiered Maxi

Jennifer Paganelli is a popular fabric designer who discovered me on instagram a couple years ago. Ever since she landed on my page, she has been extremely supportive of my work ever since. Recently, she designed a new fabric collection called Sugar beach and I must admit, it is the most prettiest fabric for the Summer.😍 #winning πŸ™Œ The chartreuse, orange, and pink has me over here like 😩 "I don't want to cut into you... but if I must..." 😩 I'm making the biggest, most flowiest (is that a word? πŸ€” is today🀭), Summery dress I'll ever own. If you are color obsessed like I am you will love Jennifer's new fabric collection. Check it out here The fabric is called 'Chantelle'

Pattern: M7626

Modifications: The bodice was used from this pattern and for the straps, I cut out four, to tie a bow on each side.
The bottom portion of the pattern was not used. I created a tiered effect. (Click HERE for for tutorial on this dress.)

Since the fabric has a busy print, I decided to break it up with a solid orange belt. It also adds a cool color block look to the entire outfit.

When I received this fabric, the first thought that that came to my mind was, "How do I maximize the beauty of this fabric?" So I dug through my inspiration stash and found a designer dress that retails at $726. πŸ™Š I did add a little something extra to my dress that the original dress did not have and those were the bow straps. So if I had to judge based on the fabric and my extra special touch.... I honestly think I like mine better. πŸ™ˆ

This dress is definitely my current fave! πŸ’• On the day that I wore this dress, I received so many compliments and I was so excited to share it with you guys in hopes that you would make one too. 😁 The fabric is soft, breathable, and it has a nice weight to it. Thank you Jennifer!
