Making the Gertie tiki dress makes me want nothing but sunshine. Sewing it was a breeze.

Materials I used for this project were mostly found in my stash, except the elastic thread I got to use for the very first time! The fabric was fun and loud and is getting me prepped and ready for days by the beach with a mixed tropical drink in hand! The photoshoot I did for this dress really expresses the sentiment 100%!

I’m happy to say that the Gertie tiki dress┬ávideo was super fun to shoot- please check it out and leave a comment and subscribe!


  1. You must put in so much work to make these videos. They are fantastic and so professional. I really enjoy watching your process and listening to you reflect on the garment. Amazing!

    • Thanks, Christina!

      Definitely a lot of planning goes into it, but I wouldn’t be able to do it without the help from my boyfriend. He went to school for film, so its definitely been an interesting exercise pushing myself to talk about my pieces. But its also amazing to mix both our skill sets in this way!

  2. The dress looks amazing and I am really enjoying your videos! Keep up the good work! :)

    • Thank you so much! The videos are so fun to shoot :D!
