BurkartJ-christeningdressfromweddinggownJen Burkart sent her wedding dress to have us make a baptism gown for her daughter. Her wedding dress had some lovely embroidery and beadwork elements that we were able to work in. The flowing chiffon allowed us to use some fullness in the skirt.

Thought I'd share this blast from the past. A couple of year ago I made this custom doll to enter into a local competition. The rules of the competition were that we had to sew something using onlly a t-shirt, a piece of lingerie and a pillow case. I literally pulled the threads from the fabric to create her hair and she is stuffed with shredded pieces from the garments. ... See MoreSee Less

I'm really excited! Tomorrow my sister Jodie is coming to visit. We don't get to see much of each other so I'm looking forward to her visit--which means I may be distracted for a couple of days and not posting here much.

Work will still get done as I have some very talented helpers who will be working and I will be in the studio in the mornings making sure things are going forward. However, I'm planning to spend as much time with my sister as possible. Jodie is the one on the left in this picture. I'm the one in the middle. My sister Linda Jo is on the right. Our MOM made the outfits :)

Jill Maupin brought her wedding dress to us to have us make a First Communion gown for her daughter. Jill's wedding dress had some stunning bead work on it and I tried to incorporate it in a way that will work well for a 7-year-old to wear.

We also made Jill's original veil smaller. This ended up being more work than I had anticipated because we (I mean Cassie) pretty-much had to take the whole thing apart, cut it down and then re-assemble it. I was very pleased with the results thought.

In addition to the gown and veil, we made a teddy bear and a child's purse. Unfortunately, I did not get a photo of the purse.

Craig Otis and his children sent us a jacket that belonged to his wife's father who recently passed. The bear was a gift for his wife. He asked us to give it angel wings so we did. ... See MoreSee Less
