Jackie Kennedy-Bright Pink Off Shoulder Wiggle Dress

 This was a custom request dress, my customer had only the pictures below, and was unable to find a photo of the lower portion of the dress so we went with a straight skirt. The dress if fully lined and had a wide bias facing inside the neckline. Because it sits just off the shoulder i sewed boning in the sides, front bust seams and the back to help hold the dress in place. I decided to go with a little 60s mod detail and have the front square off with a bow instead of just a normal waist seam. The dress sits a bit low on the dress form because she only has one arm, but you get the idea :-)

Custom Request-Britney Spears Stretch Lace Crop Top-

 This was a custom request, a top like the one worn by Britney Spears in one of her music videos.
After going through the available stretch lace options she chose the teal as shown above. I had to watch this video several times to figure out how it was put together. Below the the screen grabs i used. I happened to have a stretch satin that was the exact color left over from another project! I love when that happens and i did gold buttons on the cuffs and at the back of the neck.

Pinup Pants- Marilyn Monroe Slacks

 I finally got to make the pants for this outfit! They are high-waist cut about 3'' above the natural waist so they fit nicely under the top, also the pants are a bit shorter at a capri length. The original outfit worn by Marilyn was a jumpsuit, so it would have had less fabric at the waist and wouldn't have to worry about the top slipping up, the pants were straight leg and covered the top of her shoes.

Happy New year everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season.  I am slowly getting back to work and adjusting to working in a very stop and go manor with a baby in the house. I have finished a few items that i have made before so i wont bother posting those but i did make something new! Styled after a photo of Elizabeth Taylor in a white halter dress, see below

 I happened across a great deal on ivory taffeta and i found this lace on Etsy that i just had to order, so I made a sample dress, it is still available for sale at half price right now because i got such a great deal on the fabric! I used a vintage belt kit, i just love them i wish they weren't so hard to find.
