Making Fascinators

I have been straight up sewing like a storm!!!!  Now I need to finish sewing and finish taking pictures of it all to 1) sell it on my etsy site and 2) Show all of you what I have been doing.  But here is a sneak peak because I can’t resist.

It all start with fascinators… I can’t stop making them.  And then in order to take the pictures (in my head) of them I want to make crazy party clothing to go with all of the fascinators.  So I am working on a mini bridal collection of some mix and match separates, a couple “bridesmaid”/party dresses and, of course a simple silk wedding dress.  Yeah, it’s ambitious…. but all of the separates (washed silk taffeta skirts and hand- dyed linen tank tops) are done and the bridesmaid samples are partially done.  That just leaves the wedding dress.

Once it is all done I am going to put my huband in his three piece, voluteer my friends for the wedding party and take some mock wedding picture of the whole shibang .  Yeah, no, not ambitious at all.

OK so I did take some pictures of the fascinators kind of to scout out the a location for my bridal shoot, and kind of spontaneously because my friend Taz, talented photographer had time to work with me.

More from the embroidery front.

I have been quite busy this last month- costumes for boylesque, pillows for wThe Wedding Pantry , a bridal shop in LA ….  the pillows are on my ETSY site as well, 60th birthday present for my mom (don’t worry there is no spoilers here).  Fosse Jack (boylesque) is performing tonight at Neighbors– featuring costumes by me.  Doors open at 8:30 and there is a $10.00 cover.

And it continues…. I am starting a wedding dress for my friend Michelle.  It is just a cute 1950’s inspired white silk dupioni with deep teal Mums embroidered on it (not by me).  I think it will be fun… and not to bridaly (ick).  Speaking of Bridal, there are new pillows up on my Etsy site now .  Take a look and enjoy!

PS- I am SOOOO excited about my Moms present…. its gonna be REAL good!  It is hard not to share but seeing as my Mom is like my only loyal fan, it would not be worth spoiling.
