Satin and Lace Bridal Gown

This beautiful gown was custom made for an Etsy client who was married a few months ago. The design was heavily influenced by an inspiration photo she found. It’s a strapless white satin gown with a short train, with an open front lace jacket that ties on with a chiffon sash onto which I hand sewed the beautiful broach you see pictured. This one was a lot of fun to make. My best wishes to the bride and groom!

Website updates

Alongside my efforts to catch up on blogging, I have taken the time to perform some much needed updates to my website. I hadn’t added any new photos since early last spring, and I have added photos and descriptions of a dozen garments made in the time since then. Check it out and let me know what you think!


Playing Catch Up

I’m behind. Months behind. My apologies to those of you who have followed my blog in the past, when it was updated routinely.

Thankfully, it’s a matter of too much, rather than too little, to say. Business has been booming and I’ve enjoyed a wide variety of projects to occupy my time. The result however has been that, at the end of twelve hour days of sewing, I lack the creative energy to write about what I have made. This month, I seem to have a bit of breathing room for the first time since early last September, and I intend to make the most of it! I have already updated my website with photos of many of my recent creations, and I plan to work this month on playing catch up here on the blog.

More will follow soon, but for the time being, please enjoy this photo of a corset I made as a Christmas gift for one of my loved ones. The fabric is a beautiful hand dyed silk charmeuse, with black lace accents. Inside the corset, sturdier fabric and multiple pieces of steel boning provide phenomenal support and shaping. The gift was well received, and the woman for whom I made it is thrilled to have the option of wearing strapless garments for the first time in a very long time!
