Customer Photos: White Regency Gown!

  One of my recent customers sent in a picture of a Regency gown she purchased from me!

  I always love hearing from customers... especially when they send in pictures. It's something beautiful when you get to see your creation actually on the customer instead of having the last memory be one of packing the thing in a box.

  Plus, she shared a fun video... of which my dress took part! 1:20 upper left hand corner, one of the white dresses! So fun!

Anne's Sailor Dress: A Custom Order!

  I completed the main part of the dress I was working on from Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel, as mentioned in this post. Although I need to make one more piece (the last camisole to go underneath)... I couldn't resist sharing!

  My customer asked for a slightly modernized version of the dress. I was really REALLY excited when I found that out, because I've been wanting to make a modernized movie costume for the longest time. And then when I got the chance to do a dress that I've also been dying to make for even longer? Perfection.

  Without further adieu-

  If you want your own version of this dress, please feel free to contact me! I'd love to do it again... in traditional style or modernized, whatever!

In Progress...

  Two custom orders are currently in the works... no production images just yet, but here's pictures of the original costumes so you can get an idea of what's going on in the workroom!

A modernized adaptation of this dress is almost complete...

...and the fabric is en route for this one. 

I'm still open for custom orders! Contact me and we'll talk about your dream costume!

2012: A Sewing Year In Review

  Here's to 2012 being an incredible year for pretty much everything... especially sewing. I feel like I learned a lot last year... but I know this year will present many new oppurtunities for learning new skills and acquiring more experience! Please note that I am one hundred percent up to doing custom orders... I love helping people create costumes from movies and otherwise!
