Hey guys! It's been a while since I posted last time or visited your beautiful and inspiring blogs:-(
I guess I have no excuse:-). Me and my husband visited beautiful Italy again. I will make a vacation post soon. We also started a new business adventure - redesigning high end wedding dresses. I dont know where it is going to take me yet, but what a wonderful and liberating experience it is. I used to sew before I got married and I guess, it is like riding a bike - you just never forget.
We just displayed this gorgeous dress in our friend's beautiful store Elecrolysis by Francine
We were so excited, nobody thought to take a camera for better pictures. So all pictures you see are taken with i-phone. Here are some pictures of the dress and the way it is displayed in the store.

I had to take it apart and put it together. This dress was desperately screaming for a definition of the waist, so I made a belt with the flower embellishments in the front and the satin rose bow in the back above the chapel train.

Dresses like this are sold for $1,200 to 1,800. They are custom made and there is an 8 to 10 months waiting period and numerous fittings after.
Our dress is displayed for only $599.
If any of you guys are interested, please e-mail me for more info at 

This picture is the window view from outside. Hope you liked this gorgeous dress (I worked very hard on this dress):-) And also that somebody will fall in love with it and look like a princess on her wedding day.
Let me know what you think.
Have a wonderful weekend.
