Recent Work: Tunic Dresses and Beaded Slips!

As promised, here are some shots of the pieces I designed a few weeks ago!

The first one is one of my favorite pieces in a long time. I made it using silk fabric from a men's robe and vintage sheer netting! The beaded slip dress was created from a beaded muumuu and a vintage slip, and the navy top with a lace collar is a reconstructed slip. I definitely need to start taking photos of these pieces before AND after, because sometimes it's astonishing even to me:)

Yesterday I sewed up a storm on my day off, and will be bringing a whole load of new pieces to Local Honey at the end of the week. I'll be posting those pieces within the next few days.

Now it's off to work, in my AMAZING new plaid coat...I can't wait for you all to see it!

My Own Place and a Birthday

Hello my darlings! Where have I been, you ask? Well, in my absence I have been working overtime designing some stage outfits for a lovely pair of girls, I've moved out of my parents' house and over to East Nashville, and celebrated my 24th birthday. I'm a bit disorganized at the moment, but have much planned once everything gets back to normal for me. For now, I'll leave you with some photos of my new place! (Don't worry, I'll be sharing the pieces I designed soon, too!)

P.S. the kitten that makes a cameo in the photo with my work table is named Skinny Jeans (she adores my sewing chair), and Velveteen Rabbit is quite enjoying her new home on one of my shoe shelves...I even gave her a fur and a tiara to help make the move a bit less traumatizing.
