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™‚

… inspired by Greta.

She’s a floor length dress with a very long front slit to show some leg. This is a Made To Order dress and can be done in plus sizes.

You modern girls can have it made to knee length. Just ask πŸ™‚

Susie needs a dress for her sister’s wedding in August. She’s been given some leeway with design and given a range of blue shades to choose from. She’s come to me looking for a design to flatter her voluptuous figure. Here are her inspiration photos:

The notched bustline is too revealing for her taste and wants to change that design without resorting to the common straight line. It should have a little modern flare, but still look good with the bolero.

I suggested changing the bustline to something more like this:

There will be a lace up back with modesty panel and multi-colored tulle showing at the bottom. I’ll keep you posted as the process moves along. Gathering materials for the next week or so 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.
