No automatic alt text available.

We’re happy to announce that one again, we’ll be participating in the Tombstone Tour of Homes. Believe it or not, Tombstone isn’t just a city with a famous gunfight, it’s also known for it’s wonderful Holiday Tour of Homes! This year will be the third year that our No. 11 is included in this lovely event and once again, “The Dressmaker’s Cottage at #11” will be fully decorated for Christmas and will have extra surprises of antique machines, part of our antique clothing museum, some new period furniture pieces and a few sparkly things. Stay tuned for more! 🙂

And For A Little Early Christmas…

We normally prefer to reserve our Christmas-themed posts until AFTER Thanksgiving, this one was just too nice to pass up: Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, BC:  🙂

For us, this is not just another pretty Christmas scene- we were fortunate to have been able to view this room (sans Christmas decorations) during a recent visit to Craigdarroch Castle; pictures simply doesn’t do justice to it. Of course, we’re also planning on our own take on Christmas at No. 11 when we once again participate in the Tombstone Historic Home Tour so stay tuned!

The Anastasia Dress In Action…

One of the most satisfying things about creating bridal dresses is being able to see them “in action” and it never grows old. 🙂 Below are some pictures of one of our bridal dresses based on our “Anastasia” design, modified to the client’s specific desires:






And for the grand finale: 🙂


Sheer beauty in action- the Anastasia design is available in a variety of fabrics and trims, each uniquely crafted to the client.
