sketching…

For today’s wedding Wednesday post I am going to share with you some of my favourite sketches. Some of them have been sewn into actual garments, some are dreams and ideas, and others are for upcoming weddings.

One of my favourite parts of my job is meeting with new clients. This usually involves coffee or tea, comfy chairs and chatting. I love to find out about how they met their special someone, see their ring, and find out what they are planning for their big day. Is it going to be big and traditional, or small and intimate? Do they love lace or chiffon…or both? Do they want a big princess dress or something that hugs the body?

I take all this information and then start sketching. Sometimes the bride will bring pictures to help her describe to me what she is looking for, but I don’t want to just copy a picture. I want to inject some of her personality into the design.

After all, that’s what having a custom dress is all about.
