saturday morning

I don't know when I became such a morning person, but I truly love them. I'm so much more focused and productive. Maybe it's just because of the coffee? That's highly likely.

Another new little mixed media sketch. This one is going to be part of a series where I take little scraps and essentially do a paperdoll with them. So much fun!

Yes, I'll be having some more of these on my etsy page, too.

arctic blast 2010

Brrrrrrrr! It's so cold outside in New York today. It's nice just staying in and working from home. Lately, I've been enjoying starting my day by sketching. I have to say, it's been awhile since I've done much sketching (other than rough, little doodles), and I'm loving it! It's quite a nice change from being hunched over a sewing machine all day.

PS Nicole: That's one of your lace swatches in the bottom! Your dress is going to be amazing! I can't wait to do it! :)

PPS to everyone else: I'm selling off some of these sketches on my Etsy page now.

online shop now up!

So, it's still under construction, but it's up for now. This is a private online shop of my bridal styles. More to come next week, but I currently have a big sale going on on my most popular styles to kick it off.

The Julietta, Betty White and Helene are all on sale for today and tomorrow only. So if you're in the market for a gown, it's a deal to jump on!

lovely wedding

I love it when clients send me in pictures of their weddings! It's already great to be a part of someone's big day by making the dress and it's work that I really enjoy, but it's even better when I get to see how it all turned out.

I worked with Neeve this past year, to create a customized version of my eco-friendly Helene dress. Neeve and her new husband Justin were looking to keep with having everything in their wedding made right here in Brooklyn, and were wed in a lovely spot in Carroll Gardens.

Such a lovely couple! Congrats, Neeve and Justin!

PS. Don't you just LOVE the red shoes she wore with it?!
