and I love when a family chooses this for their baby's christening. It's always a pleasure to see what style gown the client is bringing me, to get the creative juices flowing as we discuss ideas for the baby's gown.
Today's consultation couldn't have gone faster or smoother - I'd taken some time to set out photos of past gowns I'd made before the clients arrived, including a slideshow on my new MacBook Pro (yay Photoshop!) While it's usually the mother who comes to see me for these projects, this time both parents brought their beautiful little girl, and both were very vocal on their preferences for the baby's outfit. This wedding gown is made from an all-over lace embellished with beaded edging and appliques, over a satin undergown, and the couple really liked one of the gowns I'd done several years ago using a similar style.
Keep watching for photos as I make progress on this gown. I can't tell you how happy I am to be able to do this project - it's been too long since I've had a really creative garment to make - and to be paid to make it! - Having a baby in the studio was pretty fun, too.
Now if it would only stop snowing for more than a few days....I'd love to see signs of winter ending and spring coming on!
