Hello all! Here is what i’m thinking. Since i am up to my elbows in commissions and it can be tricky posting progress pics “during” the creation (clients like to be the first ones to see a work and still others might consider me stealing their thunder if i posted theirs) i am going to post a bunch of dress sketches this week.
i had so much fun sifting through my design journals from my days in the bridal biz. And response from my sweet readers was quite positive….so here we go~ a week-long peek at some of my favorites.
This sketch is a beaded, triple layer chiffon gown with a bodice overlay in wispy coordinating chiffon with beading along the edges & dangles on the points. i think i might revisit this bodice for a little summer dress! : )
Now, if only i was a good at taking actual photos of the completed gowns to compare! i was horrible at that. i think i only have maybe 4-5 photos? My sister and a few friends are easy marks though. i can squeeze some photos out of them! For now, i’ll leave you with and in-progress shot of my sister’s gown and veil back in 2000? i think? In this pic, i was about midway through the sewing and had a lot of hand beading left to complete….
bye for now! More tomorrow!
