Here Comes the Sun...

This is a photo shoot that I did of my lovely friend Tatum over Christmas break. Tatum and I took Latin together last year and she always made that class so much fun. This was one of the most enjoyable photo shoots that I've done all year and she made taking photos so easy. She's wearing my Vintage Inspired Yellow Coat that I made a few years back. I'm working on another coat similar to this one, but with some changes to the fit and coloring.

Special thank you to Tatum for going out in the freezing cold in a dress!























I've been sewing like a mad woman who's finally free from college applications. I have a backlog of projects and photos that I'm very excited to finally post.

Lately I've been thinking of showing a lot more of my work in progress photos. I always try to take as many as I can, because most of the time the outside of the garment is just half of the overall look. So much detail goes into creating the inside and so I always love it when people post work in progress and behind-the-scenes photos. So here are some behind-the-scene images of a dress that I'm working on right now.

I hope that you all have a lovely weekend!
