Custom bridal veil

This beautiful veil was custom made for a client on etsy to match her bridal gown. The mantilla style veil has an offset comb to fall over her face as well as down her back. The veil is made from ivory colored bridal illusion tulle, and the entire edge was hand beaded with beautiful Swarovski bicone crystal beads, real freshwater pearls, and sparkling sequins to match her gown.

After Midnight

AfterMidnight1This sexy Latin number was so much fun to make! The super short skirt has a dramatic V shaped hemline with beautiful fringe for fantastic movment, and the top features padded bra cups and off the shoulder straps. And of course, it’s been positively COVERED in Swarovski rhinestones in Jet and Jet AB. There are about 8 gross of rhinestones on the bra cups alone!

What do you think? Is it over the top, or a fantastic choice to STAND OUT on the dance floor?

Night Fire

nightfire5Once upon a time, I promised that I would share more details about the creation of my mother in law’s ballroom dance costumes. Recently, my husband and I shot several photos of both dresses to include in my portfolio (the photos I previously had taken were on the dress form only and failed to show several of the details I wanted to display), and also to list on my website, as my mother in law has asked me to resell both dresses for her.

nightfire2This is the dress we custom designed for her to wear for a Latin style ballroom dance performance. The body of the dress is made from red Slinky, and the skirt is several layers of red and purple chiffon fabric. To accomodate her full figure, my mother in law and I designed the dress with a flattering ruched bodice, plus sized sewn-in bra cups, and a faux dropped backline with a flesh toned fabric panel so she was free to wear a bra with this dress as needed. The built in body suit has a modest “boy short” cut rather than the typical brief or bikini cut. The dress is decorated with roughly 15 gross of Swarovski rhinestones in size 20ss Jet, Garnet, Siam and Crystal AB. Strings of rhinestones (which are detachable) adorn the faux bare back. The overall effect was very flattering on her, and sexy while still more modest than many Latin style ballroom dance costumes.

nightfire4The dress was designed for a specific event that my mother in law and her husband planned to perform in. Unfortunately, they had to cancel their participation as he was called away to work unexpectedly. And, since my mother in law has done an incredible job getting into shape (way to go!) the gown no longer fits her. So, custom designed though it is, the dress is going to be listed for sale never having been danced in. If you have any interest in purchasing this dress, check my website at soon when additional details will be posted, or send me an email.
