Starlight

This past sunday I did a photo shoot with my good friend and super talented photographer Casey Curry as his studio here in beautiful Downtown Los Angeles. This dress I am wearing is very special not only because it is vintage but because it belonged to the actress Sharon Tate. I love her so much and am so grateful to the Family of Sharon for letting me borrow this dress for my personal project.

Hopefully I did it justice.

My Cinderella

Well I suppose this would be one version of a dress if Cinderella was a real live girl. I hand dyed white lace and trim to match, then made all the shirring and hand beaded and added color matched metal findings along bust line and on skirt. I love making special one of a kind dresses .  It is also somehow cathartic creating something new in between my daily sewing projects. I only usually have these items available in my retail store, just because people usually want to try on things when they are higher price points and make sure of the fit etc.

Headband is also by me.

This dress is on my website however.

Anyhow…
