Vintage Alterations
Re-make a vintage dress to work for the client. The alteration included shortening the dress at both hem and waist, repairing zipper and sleeves, and re-styling the neckline.
Mother's Dress
Create a Mother's suit in a lively color to reflect the clients taste and personality. Purple silk with lavender accents with a little swing was just the right fit.
Mrs. Minnesota Pageant Costume
Create a costume that displays the competitor's interest (ballet) and a MN natural resource.
A feathered and bejeweled tutu created her perfect swan.
Wedding Abroad
Client required a simple ensemble that would travel well, reflect her heritage, meet strict church standards, and not compete with the ornate surroundings. A "fit-to-flare" style dress in duchesse satin combined with a Spanish inspired mantilla met the requirements. The mantilla could convert to a traditional veil or wrap as desired by the bride.
Dance Costumes
Custom tutu skirt overlays for a local dance school. Each skirt was a unique color, and had matching bows and accessories.
Simple Alteration
Add straps to make dress compliant with dress code requirements without drastically changing the existing dress.
