Okay I gave you all a little teaser on Tuesday. Glad to see you stopped back to see what became of "The Dress". I was so excited when I was commissioned to created a Christening outfit for my friend, Doreen's son Luke. She had a unique request that I make this an outfit that could be used for both a boy and a girl as she hopes to have a daughter one day. So after a little thought I figured we could just make the bottoms interchangeable with the help of buttons. I was so pleased with the outcome and so was Doreen. I couldn't be happier. There is nothing I love more than creating special garments for sweet little ones.
Every little girl dreams of her wedding day and "The Dress". Well that day comes and goes and I swear 9 times out of 10 that dress ends up in a black trash bag stashed in the basement. This is a story of a dress just like that. It was worn about six years ago by my friend Doreen. She too had tucked it away and was even thinking about, dare I say "Throwing it out!" And there my friends is your teaser. Check back Thursday to see what became of "The Dress".
I was a guest speaker at the local chapter of MOPS. Their last meeting was all about interior design on a budget. I was there to show off my $140 master bedroom makeover. I really enjoyed my time there and meeting all the moms! Thanks again for inviting me to speak!

I just wanted to share some photos of one of our custom nursery sets. Mom loves the simplicity of Martha Stewart and was looking for something along those lines for her son's nursery. Her theme was the moon and stars. The parents had even painted some stars on the ceiling. We started out with the moon and stars jersey knit fabric as our starting point. This was used to make the crib sheets. We carried the motif onto the crib blanket with a custom patch that is a prefect match to the sheets. I'd say this nursery is complete and just waiting for this little star to make his big appearance!

Looking for a unique Valentines present for your wife; why not have her wedding gown upcycled into a special piece that she can continue to wear throughout the years. Email me to set up a design consultation
Remember how the bow was all the rage in the early 90's; well we even found a way to include that little detail in the new garment.
We also included a small label on the inside with the wedding date.
