Happy Flower Dress!

I was so frustrated by the fact that the dress I made yesterday was soooo teeny tiny that I would never be able to wear it, I woke up this morning with a mission to make a dress (during my daughters nap of course) that would fit me and I did!! Love it. It also looks much better on a person than the mannequin.

Sample Sale!

I just made this linen dress as a sample. Way too small to fit me! Size 2 with an A or B cup would look great in this. Sample price for this one is $55 Free shipping anywhere in the US. ( Custom order for other sizes or colors will be $120.)
Yea! This dress SOLD!

She asked for a dress instead...

and after I made THIS dress to replace the pinafore she said it was too big. I give up!

The Whole Set!

Well, this may be a tad redundant but I had to share. The Birthday Crown Shirt made the outfit much more girly and she actually tried it on! Although a skirt has been requested to replace the pants!

One more thing...

Forgot to mention the super-soft stretchy headbands I have been working on. I need a model!!!

New from the Summer Collection!

Whipped this cute little Aqua and Red number up this morning (complete with headband) for my adorable three year old. When I showed it to her she frowned and announced that she "doesn't wear pants". I suppose that means it has been released for sale!
Oh the charms of this darling age.

Emily is getting her tutu today!

I think this one might be my favorite. I love the colors together. Just yummy. It is also a favorite because it is for a seven year old. This is the first one I have ever made without a pattern for the top.

Farrah Braniff Photography

I am so lucky. Thursday night I made my first tutu for a newborn. I don't have a mannequin for that size but I really wanted to see it on (as I do with all my tutus to check the fit and size). I was lamenting this fact to my fabulous photographer friend Farrah Braniff, and what do you know? She happened to have a newborn shoot scheduled for the very next day! Thank you Farrah for giving me my first glimpse of great professional photography.

For some reason (blog illiterate) I can't post the darn link! Post a comment if you know why "insert link" is not working.

Hannah and her sister are leaving:)

I just made these for a good friend. One is for her daughter (who was a preemie) and the other is for her niece--a cancer survivor. I really hope the dresses bring joy to those little girls. They certainly deserve it!

In love with the ice blue tutu:)

This is why I love those darn special orders! I would not have tried the blue otherwise.

Tutu lala continued...

Lots o' tutus!
My studio. Yikes!

Tutu lala!

Well, I just had to post this one. I understand that to the untrained eye the subtle differences in each tutu are difficult to find, but for me, the differences are so exciting!

Such a cutie!!

Had to post the photo my friend shared of her daughter in her Ivy and Holland Tutu Dress. I think the bunny just makes it!

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Work in progress!

I just got an order for three tutus yesterday. I am really excited because the colors on the tutus are so unique. I really love doing custom orders for this reason. People inspire me with their ideas!
Thanks Gina:)

(the color is not great in the photo but it is black and white with lavender tulle. Key lime green yoyos will be added to the skirt next)

The Hamptons Fourth of July Tutu!!

I finally finished it! I just love making tutus This one is such a OOAK piece. Available in 18mo-5T for the next 4 days.


I have dragged myself into 2010 by purchasing the new 4G ithingy. After much anticipation of all of the cool applications and quick photo uploading I would be doing, I am sitting at my computer wondering why--a day later-- I have no cell service on the fancy thing?

So instead of posting a photo of a fancy new tutu I will be posting a photo of my fancy new paper weight.
Love my mac!

I love it when the studio is clean. Hate it when the mice don't clean up after they finish making one of my Ball Gowns.

haruko kitty

joy is bubbling from every pore as haruko kitty discovers a new fabric store.
this is my first blog. my daughter is crawling all over me as i am writing this. i am wondering if this blog thing is just a public journal? "i want to push the star" ivy said. and so mommy let her888888888888. that was my little girl pushing the "star".

a passion for making lovely bouquet's for brides is a lovely way to start the day.

spring preparations!

i love spring! as far as i am concerned, march first means SPRING FESTIVUS!
