Custom made wardrobe sets inspired by Outlander

A couple of years ago I began designing a beautiful pattern for a new corset.  The design combined 18th and 19th styles of corsetry.  I wanted to make a corset that was versatile and that could be used within a "wardrobe".  The wearer could add different chemises, sleeves, skirts, bustles, etc...to create their own unique [...]

Custom corsets in coutil

Brandi drove all the way from Wyoming to get a custom coutil corset to go under her bridal gown.  She was starting to panic as she went to every lingerie shop in Denver and Wyoming.  Until she met with me one afternoon.  She needed to contain "the girls and the dinner party"....lol.  I had a [...]

New black satin masquerade dress.  I am really inspired to make beautiful corset dresses that you can be comfortable enough to dance the night away in at a masquerade.  Full length ball gowns can get in the way on the dance floor.  The ruffle skirt gives a beautiful ethereal look when dancing and the high [...]

New Gowns made from Silk fabrics

Silk dresses are my favorite to make.  The rich and vibrant color of silk fabric really pops on camera.  Whenever I have a consultation for a custom dress I also recommend silk taffeta, satin, or dupioni.  There is nothing like the feel of silk, it's natural properties allow it to breathe and layering it creates [...]

Working with Erik Cooper

This summer I had the chance to work with photographer Erik Cooper.  Erik's photography is perfect for catalogs.  It has been difficult to find photographers that focus on the clothing design itself.  While I understand the need for artistic photography (fantasy style shoots) my customers still like the simplistic clean views of my designs.  Erik [...]
