My Own Projects: From Wedding Dress tulle to a full flirty skirt

I love deconstructing dresses and making something new from them. My cousin resently gave me her dress and I made an awesome Tulle skirt from it! I will be doing a photo shoot with 'Michelle Liane Photography' some time in early 2015, but for now here it is.

Alterations: Buttons

I recently updated and fixed three coats for a client with Buttons. I love this idea, by just changing something so simple you can have a brand new look.

My Own Projects: A Princess Costume

I was asked and I offered, to make my nieces Halloween costume. I knew, because she loves frozen, it should be a princess-esque dress, so that is what I did.  She's two but she loved it and I treasure those excited moments! I hope you enjoy!

My Niece as Elsa.

I hand painted all the snowflakes.

Dress Making Report: The Maid of Honour dress and matching Tie

This is the Maid of Honour dress and matching tie that I made recently for a client. I was so delighted to make this dress, the colour is amazing and it fit her figure perfectly. The tie was my very first attempt at making one, but it also worked out very well.
