Formal Wear Dress

Over the years I have done a few wedding dresses. It was never my plan to want to make dresses that would just be worn once. It’s hard work to make a dress although when someone comes to me and is serous about me making their dress for one of their most special days, I take it into consideration.

I love vintage inspired, movie replicas, fun or non traditional dress styles. These customers are also usually more fun to work with.

The first thing I like to do is ask them,”Why Handmade?” If they think it cost less, have issues with their body size or shape, on a major weight loss plan or think I can do it overnight it is a big.sorry.no. Last halloween I made an orange and black plus size gown for Nicole, my Facebook friend.

Some times I never get a good picture of the dress. This was my first wedding dress and I never got a picture. It was amazing!

I also liked to practice dress before I obligated myself for the job.
