Valentino and Me!

I was recently asked to come by a new shop in Senoia, Ga., - Fabulous Frocks ( to see about doing some alteration work for Abriel, the owner.

I left with a gown to work on that basically needs taking in, a hem and bustling. Then, a few days later, Abriel called me back about another gown. This one is kind of exciting!

The work I will be doing will be 'pro-bono'. It is for a mock wedding photo shoot, by PaperLily Photographers.( The mock wedding shoot will be so very cool! I won't give away any details, but I will show you pics of the dress they chose!

Who would have ever thought that I would be working on a Valentino Gown?!
The delicate fabric on this gown seems so fragile, that I was truly nervous about working with it. The couture workmanship is perfect. Lots of hand sewn detail.
This photo is the "before". Fortunately, it only needed a hem and bustling.

After the  hem

The train before bustling

And the train after the bustling.

I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to work on such an exquisite piece of workmanship!
