I want to trot out a few of the custom dresses and such to give you a taste of what I have been doing.
This little black dress is a simple tank style dress with a contoured hem. It is of a luscious soft bamboo interlock knit. I created the silk sash after I shortened a silk dress-- the customer for whom I shortened the dress allowed me to recycle her excess hem fabric!
I created this terrific hooded wool coat for a customer and liked it so much myself that I ended up making a wool lace vest for myself with the same type of hood on it.
I have made many custom wedding gowns over the past year. This vintage style gown is stunning in person! I will share photos of the beautiful bride wearing it once I receive them.
Am I lucky or what?? I get to make very fun costumes for a young woman who wears them to Japanese animation conferences! This dress transforms my customer into a human version of a certain Anima character.
It has been so long since I shared my own dress creations here on the blog that my own summer dress never got included in a post. Don't worry, I don't wear it this time of the year. (it's all of 19 degrees farenheit outside right now)
This stretch satin wedding gown is one of the prettiest gowns I have ever made, in my opinion. It is so elegantly simple. It sure sets off the bride's elegant and striking beauty....
I will post many pictures of this beautiful customer before too long.... This photo is just to entice you to subscribe to the blog. You will NOT want to miss the professional photos soon to be published here on KathleenTemple, Tailor that will show you this black lace (honeymoon!) dress with side pockets, her flame-orange chantilly lace wedding gown, and her awesome wedding. Jimmy Choo heels....
A whole troop of bubble-skirted bridesmaids' dresses in hot pink taffeta!
I made this dress about a zillion years ago, but I love it so much I couldn't leave it out here.... Of course I matched the stripes perfectly (I LOVE to match stripes).
Enough of the photos I took myself, eh? The last few photos I will show today were created by the talented photog Chelsea Weaver.
Do subscribe to KathleenTemple, Tailor, will you? There will be more photos coming soon. Thanks!
