Sharing an Emme Commission

My customer had a specific style of Ball Room Dance gown in mind for a friend's Christmas gift. This is my interpretation of her vision...

The skirt is double layers of chiffon and used a hemming method new to me called 'hooping'. Hooping involves applying fishing line, or a similar product, in with the rolled hem to enhance the curl and flare of the gown.

Accenting the back is an additional piece of cloth, generally attached at the wrists or at the neckline, called a 'float'. The function of the float is to emphasize the top of the dancer, and tends to guide the audiences' eye movements to focus on the dancing couple.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!

Best wishes for a healthy, happy and prosperous 2013!!

Annabella & The Nutcracker

This is Annabella and her friend, The Nutcracker (I think she is waiting for him to come to life!)....

"I have something behind my back. Guess what it is!"

She shows the Nutcracker her reindeer. He's surprised, but doesn't have to heart to tell her it's really a moose!

Since he did not show much interest, she decided to sit and snuggle with her little 'reindeer'.

Hope you enjoyed a very short story. I still don't know how to tell Annabella that her reindeer is a moose, LOL! ;D

Annabella's outfit is currently for sale on my Sweet Creations Website in a limited edition of 2.

Have a great week!
