CUSTOM MADE DRESS BY TESSA’S JURKJES & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

CUSTOM MADE DRESS BY TESSA’S JURKJES & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Today I show you another great custom made dress by Tessa’s jurkjes. I have written a post about Tessa once before, but unfortunately you can not read that anymore. Therefore, a small introduction. This is not a sponsored post. I did receive a discount from Tessa, but I’m just a fan of this woman’s work.

Tessa is a young Dutch designer of dresses, she also started to design jackets and skirts. She is very passionate and has given up a steady job to pursue her dream, designing clothes. She is working very hard to achieve that. Last summer we did a collaboration together. The fabulous thing, about her dresses, is that you can put together your own dress, the design, the length, the sleeves, the neckline, the fabrics. So you get a custom made dress. Unique! Tessa made this one for me when we did the collaboration. I had told her then that wrap dresses are the most fantastic dresses. In the meantime she also has designed a wrap dress!

My custom made dress with two prints

Most of you know how much in love I am with wrap dresses, the decision about what design was then easily made. I also wanted two prints, I had seen that in a Diane von Furstenberg dress in Lewes in September. I doubted a  bit because they are two fairly busy prints but I immediately thought they would look great together. Often you have to follow your first thought anyway! And what a great dress it has become! Lined, which is ideal for this cold weather. But again beautifully finished. The jacket is very simple because the dress does not need anything else really, but is from scuba so that is so very nice to wear. The print is a peacock and a zigzag print.

I can not say it often enough, but if you want a fabulous dress that is made especially for you, go to Tessa’s jurkjes. Just about anything is possible and you give your measurements yourself so it always fits perfect! And for the price you certainly do not have to leave it! Come on, treat yourself to a unique dress!custom made dresscustom made dresscustom made dresscustom made dresscustom made dresscustom made dresscustom made dress

    Such a nice dress. It is great to have your dress exactly to your liking and perfect fit. You have no idea how many time I need alterations for my clothes! Thank you for sharing this, Nancy.

    Hi Nancy. What a fabulous dress. I do remember the first one Tessa made for you (and checked the link in your blog to see if I remembered correctly….) and think they are both beautiful. Today’s dress is more you I think: bolder and with more flair, which is how I picture you. I like it how you promote Tessa’s work, because you are a fan of what she’s doing. That’s walking your talk, which I happen to be a huge fan of! Love, Lieske

    You are so fortunate to have a custom dress, Nancy! It is so “you”, I know you’ll get a ton of wear out of it. You’ll have to let us know how you like the scuba fabric jacket, too.

    I am so spoiled having grown up with a mother that sews, and sews wonderfully. Because I’ve had custom made dresses for years. Isn’t it fabulous?? I really should get off my butt and learn to make my own!!
    The fact that this is two different prints makes it SO unique. And fits you so amazingly!!

      You are spoiled by your seamstress mother, Jodie!! So jealous!!!

      Wrap dresses are among my favorite. I love that they can accentuate a smaller waist without making my behind look like a billboard! What lovely fabric in your wrap, Nancy. Five years ago, I would have shied away from pattern mixing but now I realize how narrow minded and limiting that attitude was. Mixing patterns can absolutely take an outfit to a new level.

      I wanted to get to know you better, so stopped by your About page. I am sorry to learn of your lung disease. I have a young friend in Houston who is a lung transplant recipient after the chemo she took as a baby to battle brain cancer, also destroyed her lungs. Praying you are on the transplant list and that the perfect match comes to you. I was curious if you work – you have such lovely professional looking dresses – but read that you are no longer able. You always look so put together. Here I am writing this to you in sweats and an old tee. Glad you can’t see me!

        Haha, well right now I am in sweatpants too(but that is because I worked out!). I appreciate it a lot that you read the about me page. I used to work in the fashion retail and trained managers and supported fashion shows. It was the most fantastic job for me, I was depressed for a long time when I had to stop.
        Thank you very much for your lovely comment!

      I once tried to sew, but I am so very in patience. But I think it’s amazing to do. I wished I had that talent!

    Nancy, you look so glam – that’s lovely eye-makeup! And that’s such a great dress – so nice to have something unique!

      When I saw the peacock print I new I wanted that one, and then I saw the zigzag and fell in love with that one too! And they combine great! Thanks Ann!
