Psychedelic Wrap Skirt

img_2005I have been so busy getting ready for my brother -in-law’s wedding and Christmas that I haven’t done much custom sewing. I did have a client ask for a gift to be made for her sister for Christmas, and we decided on this wrap skirt in bright colors to potentially go with many tops in her closet. When we were picking out fabrics, my client described this one as “Peter Max-ish”, so I’m going with psychedelic to describe this one! This skirt is perfect to give as a gift, as it can fit many sizes. It also features roomy pockets, a favorite of mine!

Zombie Pinup Dress

The fabric is Beauty and Brains by Alexander Henry Fabrics. When this client told me she wanted to wear this dress to New Orleans for her 10 year anniversary, I knew I had to get it done in time because it would be perfect for that!! I converted her previous telephone dress into a halter dress, and this is the result! Looks gorgeous on her!

Derby dress

Custom prettiness for a client! All fabrics from The Cloth Pocket here in Austin. Top fabric is Cotton and Steel Sprinkle basics in navy, and skirt is Birch Organic Fabrics in Tall Tales Buttermilk. Box pleats and as always, pockets. Really love this pattern combination! This dress was super quick to whip up because I already had my client’s pattern on file- this is her second dress. When that’s the case, we only need to alter a few design details and the dress is finished faster – no muslin needed!

Bags!!

I occasionally take special requests for tote bags- these are pretty basic bags with a bit of structure. I can add pockets and button closures too! The fabrics are fun to play around with and combine into a colorful, vibrant tote! Let me know if you’re interested and check the “Fabrics” page for immediate available options!  These two sold for $40.o0 (not including shipping if you’re outside Austin TX). image-1
