Little Black (Sparkly!) Dress

This quote makes me think of Jasmine, who’s holiday dress I made last week.  I met Jasmine while working at Holt’s. She’s a spectacular makeup artist, and my go- to- girl for all things makeup and beauty related. She also did the gorgeous makeup in the 60’s style creative shoot we did this summer. I had such a fantastic time making her dress. Her inspiration was Audrey Hepburn.

My little girl,Veronica is totally in love with her as well. When Veronica was around for the fittings, she would copy everything that Jasmine did, and mostly just stare at her with stars in her eyes!  I can see why, as Jasmine is sparkly and luminescent on the outside and in. I’ve had so much fun with her, catching up over bubbles and treats- and muslin and pins! Here are some pictures of the making of her dress.

Should we go shorter? Yes!

Taking in the back and sleeves  a little..

Jasmine with her biggest fan!

and after a little more sewing… here it is!

I’m  so happy with the dress, and think that Jasmine looks beyond gorgeous!

Have a happy, sparkly day!

Love and peace,


Flirty and Fabulous!

It’s been so lovely to get get to know Sarah while making her holiday party dress.  We made a flirty dress with layered iridescent silk chiffon over silk charmeuse, with a custom rhinestone belt and feather and jeweled broach detail. Perfect for her white themed party overseas.  I love how it turned out, and I’m so happy Sarah loves it as well. I think she looks sensational!

Love and peace,


Party in the front…

I’m having a mullet dress moment today! Here’s a couple new sketches.

Have a fantastic day!

Love and peace,


Designs with Hilda

I am so thrilled to be working on Hilda’s destination wedding dress! Hilda and I go way back to high school on the coast, and we reconnected while working at Holt’s. She has amazing style, and is a beautiful artist.  I’m so happy for her and her future.

We found the perfect fabric…and we just fit the dress muslin. Now we’re good to go with the actual dress!  Yeah!

Designs with Angela

I had such a great time meeting with my very good friend Angela, to talk about her custom dresses.  We’ve been friends forever. It’s such a joy to be making her wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses- and a very hot little number for her stagette! I can’t wait to get started on them- and to celebrate with her next spring!
