Happy Valentine's Day!
I was finally able to release Lucy, the beautiful ivory silk gothic wedding gown that I have been working on. I was watching gothic movies this past winter and this is the design that came to fruition.
The design sarts with an ivory silk dupioni trumpet skirt then a cascade of tulle ruffles for the sweep train. Hand draped tulle overlays the skirt with red hand sewn flowers. The hourglass corset has a tulle overlay to give the fabric more sparkle. Hand sewn lace applique details and a red crystal jewel are carefully placed to enhance the waist and bust. The beaded chocker also features a red jewel. The sheer bustle is placed by hook and eye under lace appliques at the back of the waist.
I absolutely love this new gown and I hope will too!

I recently finished a new sample gown inspired by 1920s fashions. I used an ivory silk fabric and combined a corset with shoulder straps and hid the front busk opening under the appliques. I carefully chose some very high quality appliques, I did have to tea dye them to get the right color. My team [...]
I love receiving photos from brides on their wedding day of custom gowns that I make. This photo was from alternative bride Alicia on her wedding day August 2018. She ordered the custom butterfly corset gown, with fade ombre tulle skirt and flower appliques. Doesn't she look beautiful?

I recently began adding photos online of this new dress. I absolutely love how it turned out. I added a hint of color to the textured velvet corset with purple orchids. Lace and a touch of sequins help create more texture under the flowers on the custom corset. The black and purple ombre tulle skirt [...]
I hope everyone is having a wonderful spring this year. We are getting snow showers in Colorado this time of year and I am hoping to see the mountain flowers blooming soon.

Rachael had a very special idea when she emailed me regarding her custom dream wedding gown. She loved the movie Labyrinth and wanted a gown inspired by the famous movie gown worn in the masquerade scene. Her ideas also incorporated a family tradition to wear an antique gown that had been worn by her Grandmother [...]
