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,
