    • Yellow Rose Garden Dress

      Added Apr 19, 2017

      I recently wore this dress for Easter because the weather was unusually hot, but I originally made it for a friend’s wedding last summer. I love a good border print and this pattern was a great use of one!

      Added Mar 22, 2017

      A white dress is a pretty scary thing to wear for a lot of us. But a white fitted dress? Well, that’s just raising the ante and many times…there really is no winner, unless it’s a wedding dress! But I went for it anyways and made myself one.

    • The Redemption Wedding Dress

      Added Mar 14, 2017

      Six years later I got invited to a sewing function; and ac…

    • Dreams do come true

      Added Feb 16, 2017

      I made this bridal gown for my niece. She loves Disney and wanted to incorporate The Lion King into her wedding without it being obvious. The lace for her dress is actually Lion King curtains from a Disney resort. You have to really look close to see the characters. …
