1950s Wedding Alteration: Part 2

I have been having a great time working on this 1950s-themed wedding alteration!  The dress is so cute and I made some great hair and shoe clips to go with the outfit.  First I will show you the progress of the dress!

Here is the dress before I made any changes.  It has such great classic lines and is made of a really nice heavy-weight textured satin.


Here it is after I cut off the top layer of fabric!  I put the dress on a pedestal so I could measure up from the floor to get the height even all around.  That was especially important around the train.

 And here it is after all the fabric has been cut!  Look at how much fabric I have left!  I love the dress short, it is so cute.  And I am glad the bride requested a matching bolero out of all the fabric!  I will post photos of the bolero later!

As I mentioned, I also made a custom hair clip and shoe clips.  The bride is using lemon yellow as her accent color and her groom and bridesmaids are wearing navy blue, so the hair and shoe clips incorporate those colors.  I couldn’t find navy grosgrain ribbon with white stitching on the edges anywhere, so I just hand sewed it myself!  I think it was worth it!

And here is a photo of the shoes with the shoe clips!
So cute!
I will be listing hair and shoe clips like these for sale on etsy!  You can contact me directly if you are interested in custom items like these and remember I can make them in any color ribbon!

Custom Wedding Dresses

It has been a really exciting month for the business!  I have moved in with Cameron + Kelly Studios in downtown Flagstaff, I was a vendor at the Northern Arizona Wedding Expo, and I am now an official retailer for Lynn & Monroe Custom Wedding Dresses!  Connie Mosson with The Chic Bride has created a streamlined service that allows a bride to custom design her own dress or to order an existing design that is tailor-fitted to her measurements.  It is truly an amazing service.  I will work with the bride locally to design the dress, take measurements, choose fabric, and make any alterations needed.  The really incredible part is this service starts at only $600!  Why buy a designer dress for $2000 to $4000 that isn’t even guaranteed to fit when you can get a custom dress for less than $1000!  Below are some of my favorites.
Ruching looks good on everyone!
I love this vintage looking lace and the lace train!
  I am really into lace straps right now, I think they are so delicate and feminine!
Contact me to start designing your own dress today or look through my catalog of Connie’s designs.  We can also design or custom tailor an existing design for bridesmaids dresses in any color in the rainbow!
