The splendid day began with a limo ride and ended with many celebratory libations.

Andrea’s custom wedding gown, with a 3ft sequin and bead bow. To see how we put this dress together check out the link here.
Mary left to renew her vows in Ireland this month.
Here is the shoulder of the dress that I made for her.

Making Andrea’s wedding gown is my favourite project right now
Her mother dug up heirloom lace that her grandmother made, and we’re incorporating the materials into the dress design.
Andrea asked me to do a really big bow on the side of the dress, here it is! Very Lanvin-archive-inspired.
Here’s a close-up of the different beading techniques we developed. There’s 3 shades of white sequins.
I can hear birds singing.
Cara’s Wedding Dress
So GLAAD you could make it!
Here’s Marcy Clark, right, wearing a dress I made for her to wear to speak at the GLAAD art auction (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.) Go Marcy go!
Sarah’s Wedding Dress
Sarah asked me to do her wedding dress; we designed it together with the image above as our point of reference. Since this was a new pattern for me, I started with a muslin, and we discussed every detail from the pleating to the placement of the ruffles.
She wanted a color she would wear again, so we did cream silk chiffon with gold metallic threads running through. To emphasize her height, we opted for a column shape, instead of the bias-cut a-line shape of the original style.
The wedding was so much fun!
She danced the night away.
Here’s melisa at the swoon magazine masquerade ball last winter. I made her dress out of duchess satin. Suits her personality, no?
Hana’s Wedding Gown
Hana and I are creating a wedding gown for her ceremony in Japan. Here are some images of the work-in-progress.
We drew our inspiration from the gown Audrey Hepburn wore in Sabrina.
