it is a cape. it is a poncho. it is a coat.


I can think of about sixty ways to vary this design.

CUSTOM Hooded Cape Poncho Coat, your choice of fabric

And I am ready to try all sixty versions.  Let me know what fabric, color, style YOU want.
My sample here is crafted of plush wool.

Lace gown in progress....

I can't wait to see the lovely bride in this lace gown!  The lace is particularly lovely and soft, and the design is just IDEAL. 

There are actually very many little hand made buttons to close the back of the gorgeous gown.  I haven't sewn them in place yet....


The band at the empire waist is overlaid with scallops of the lace in center front.


The sleeves-- so delicate.

Vintage style

Gramma Gracie and her sister (our Aunt Agnes) made this Southwest Dress back in the 1950s.


I am dying to make one or two (or dozens!) of them myself.  Check out the new listing in my etsy shop for all the details.

CUSTOM Southwest Dress, like the one Gramma Gracie and Aunt Agnes made back in the 50s

Could I use yards and yards of white lace for yours?  
BRIDAL GOWN, yes.  
We could trim it with miles of silk satin ribbon....
