“Toes in the water . . .”

Posted on: February 2, 2010

I keep hearing that song in my head,  ” I got my toes in the water, a** in the sand, not a worry in the world, a cold drink in my hand . . .”  Sewing my new clothes has got me thinking of my upcoming trip to Roatan – can’t wait!! We leave in about 17 days!

Spent most of the day working on pictures to download to the computer. Had them all done and finished and then pushed the wrong button and deleted everything!!! Had to start all over. Most of the pictures were of my new wedding gowns. My photogragher was supposed to have photos to me last week of the fashion show. Still don’t have them. Why am I not surprised? I need something to use for a new ad for one of the local magazines I advertise in.  ‘Fayette Woman’ always does a huge bridal issue in march, and they need my submissions this week. So I took things into my own hands and took my own pics. May not be as good as the professionals, but it’s better than nothing!

On the far left is my “Blossom” gown. It is an ivory satin, a-line strapless, with about 27 silk flowers hand appliqued and beaded in sporadic patterns around the hem, the waist, and across the bodice. I don’t know if the photo here will do it justice. In the middle is a tea length chiffon with a lace waist insert. Lots of tulle under this skirt. A simple black ribbon sash adds pizazze to the dress. And on the far right is my favorite!! It’s the Feather Fantasy dress! The feathers say it all! Crazy fun dress, with fanciful feathers done very tastefully.

The other pictures I did today were of my new clothes!

The silky print chiffon with a draped neckline- and a very sexy back!

          The silky beach sarong/dress –

The convertible dress that can be worn many different ways –

And my linen beach pants and lace blouse ( which must be worn with a cami or swim suit underneath!                                     

Tomorrow it’s back to the real work – 7 wedding dresses to fix before next Wednesday!! Mostly hems, and a couple take ins, some bustles, and a couple strap adjustments. nothing major, but I need to get busy!!

Oh my goodness your dresses are beautiful!! I am in awe!

Thankyou! These are some dresses I made over teh last couple months for the briadal fashion show I recently did. They were a lot of fun to make. Already I have new design ideas going through my head, but I really need to sell some of what I have before I make anymore.
