I love seeing people dressed up, I mean really dressed up! As in formal. I love seeing brides and grooms, groups of friends headed to the prom, and the philanthropic crowd headed to a benefit gala. I love it because what a person wears when they get dressed for a formal occasion says so much about their style and personality.
Most people know that I alter, hem, and fit formal attire, but also, I love creating dresses and gowns for people who want something a bit different and completely unique. The gown (and pants!) featured today definitely fit that description! It is a completely original design, sketch to finished garment, and a labor of love. I had a great time creating it and had more fun watching it be photographed by my great friend, Sadie at Little Brook Photography and Design. Also, a very special thanks to the always stunning model, Maria.
The sketch that started it all...
