I’m working with a friend of mine to complement my bridal party services. She makes these AMAZING bow ties! Since she lives right around the corner from me, I thought, “How cool would it be to offer bow ties for the groomsmen and ringbearer made from the same fabric as the bridesmaids’ dresses?” My answer was “very cool!” So here are some sample photos:

I would make cumberbunds from the same fabric as well. Wouldn’t that be so much better than rented colors that don’t quite match your signature colors? These are hand crafted around a bow tie clip. Bow ties on the neckbands are in the works. Let me know your thoughts πŸ™‚

Gigi was inspired by a film of the same name made in 1958. She has a beautiful pleated, wrap detail that can be tied in the front or the back. Another Made To Order gown, I have created her in floor length, tea length, with straps, and with embroidery detail. She is a throwback to romance and princess fantasies. Show off the curve of your neck, the slope of the shoulder, and the line of the collarbone. The strapless, sweetheart neckline is fully supported with boning, and the full skirt comes with tulle in a complementary or contrasting color.
Plus Sizes welcome. Available in your color choice; silk, satin, or taffeta; and your choice of length.

This gown is not only an excellent choice for a ball or formal night on a cruise, but can be customized as a wedding gown with a train. Tea length makes Gigi a perfect choice for bridesmaids.

You may not know this about me, but I am a homeschooling mother of 4 (ages 7 to 16). During the school year, I am busy, busy with homeschooling and just staying on top of orders that come in. Summer is my “design time”.

I’m excited to have time to design! I feel like I don’t get to do it enough, and so, when I have the opportunity, my mind usually races ahead while my hands try to catch up πŸ™‚ My goal is to put out a total of 10 new designs by the end of the summer. I have 2 down right now and have a 3rd on the cutting table. I’m keeping my focus on formals – whether it’s cocktail dress, evening gown, or bridal party.

Suggestions on what you’d like to see (perhaps you have an upcoming event you need to shop for) are most welcome. I’m an interactive designer πŸ™‚ I will be adding a couple of separates soon for the business wardrobe. You can see the new Office Corset now in my shop.
