Tasha was married on the coast with her little dog in the wedding party.
Her five piece steampunk inspired ensemble was made of silk, dyed, distressed, and over dyed laces and tulle. Her silk dupioni over skirt was bustled up in three layers to be held out by the poufy ruffled petticoat. She wore a two-toned matching silk corset with silver buckles and grommets at the hips and shoulders. The corset and skirt was piped in matching silk. Underneath it all, she was wearing my Fluffie Rufflie bloomers in dyed dove grey lace and cotton! We worked very hard to get this right because those perfect greens and greys were proving very hard to find in the right fabrics. The Peridot green came in from Thai Silks the wrong color (which may have been my fault -be careful with those color numbers when ordering!) but they graciously took it back and sent the right stuff. I made the groom a matching waistcoat and then over her dress, Tasha wore a dark green kinsale cloak from the Folkwear line that I made with silk/rayon velvet.
She looked like she had stepped into some kind of time travel vortex when it was all put together. A beautiful bride, a beautiful wedding, a beautiful project!

I will often tackle jobs with my well honed stitch witchery skills that others fear to take on. I love taking a garment that needs repair and breathing new life into it again. My brides are usually the off beat types of all ages and persuasions who want something different to wear on their special day - something not possible to purchase off the rack. Ive made things for rock stars, for the hard to fit, for the girl next door, for the tribal belly dance kings and queens!
I take inspiration from the days of olde and the world's diverse cultures.
And when I'm not making awesome things, I'm trying to help save the world by getting in touch with the land and changing my old ways of doing things..........
