well howdy....  
Long time no speak!!  or type....

Well, we've not been around much recently (work, travel and the house move) but fear not, there has still been time for sewing :)  I have loads of photos to update so more to follow. 

Also, I've had to make this journal friends only as we seemed to have picked up some weird spam-y posters - how boring.

Anyway - the following is custom bridal at we recently completed for the fantastically gorgeous Sophia.   I think that the colour scheme she decided on is one of the most original and beautiful I have ever worked with.

This is of the complete mock up that we made (plus a few patches of crystal where I tested out the grid spacing as the crystals I used were a size up from what I usually use...I think I like the slightly bigger size more.) After trying it on, she decided she wanted a more defined sweet heart bust line, so the finished article was altered accordingly

I went through two full bags of crystals on this order (1440 per bag I think it is...)

( edited...to remove my toes that were peeking in the bottom of this photograph...)
