|Showing only the dress, for her privacy's sake...|
I am often amazed at how far the tentacles of this little blog can stretch.
Some months ago, a wonderful Australian woman came to visit New York City, booked a quick custom tour with me, and together, we found the perfect fabric, supplies, and notions to create this beautiful dress for her daughter's school ball (like an American prom) gown.
Funny enough, the Australian fell in love with this particular fabric (slightly different from what she chose for her daughter), and bought what became the under-layer for herself, but, upon her return to Australia, her daughter LOVED it, so I went to the garment district to procure a matching chiffon layer for this dreamy silk, and sent it to her in Australia!
*Note: The dressmaker commissioned to make this gown is in Australia, and she did a stellar job!
If you didn't know it already, this effort proves that a mother's love is boundless! What a lucky girl!
