Happy moments...

I often forget to stop and share what projects made me feel proud, all warm and fuzzy inside, and truly happy to be in such a great profession. Although this first photo is really far from doing this dress justice, let me just share the idea with you.

This lovely bride (and even lovlier person) came to me with an idea for a dress to suit her very petite frame. For her outdoor, summer wedding, she chose this lovely silk gauze (you can see the texture in subsequent photos) and hand crocheted her own flowers to be used as appliques on the dress. She indicated how they should form an assymetric trail up the skirt and over one shoulder of the dress, and then chose a selection of antique buttons from her grandmother's collection to adorn the back of the dress.

The result was a true collaboration that thrilled us both. Here are her impeccable flowers, sewn on the bodice...

One shoulder (blurry, but you get the idea)

The skirt portion of the dress:

I really love this kind of project, and hope to do many more in the future.
