Real Dress

Leave a comment

My cousin Tracy thought she would be able to find a gown that would meet her standards in taste, glamour and fit.  LOL!  She recapped her shopping experience after hitting the major department stores. ROTF! She is young and full of life.  So what’s out there for a shapely woman executive in her mid-forties?  You go take a look.

After assuring her that I was fine following my surgery, I made her an evening gown.  She brought her oldest son with her to pick up the gown.  He looked at the dress hanging up in my studio and said, “It looks like a real dress!”  That line is priceless.  What was even more priceless was the look on his face when his mother stepped out wearing the gown.  His big beautiful teenage smile said it all.

I started sewing when I was 11 years old, and had my own clients when I was 12. I graduated from the H.S. of Fashion Industries, majoring in fashion design. I expanded my technical background by attending evening classes at the Fashion Institute of Technology and working many years at a major pattern company. I have been creating custom wedding gowns and evening dresses for more years than I care to count. I LOVE WORKING WITH FABRICS. I love fine sewing techniques. I love creating beautiful dresses.
