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.
Sometimes it’s fun to mix things up a bit and this year is no exception. Here we are Mid-Century holiday mode at the Atelier. 🙂 We just want to wish everyone a happy holidays for 2017!
On to a happy and prosperous New Year… 🙂

2017 has been a year of change for us and although there were a few bumps along the day, it’s worked out well for us. One of the major changes was our moving into my parents’ old house, which has allowed us to expand our operations. It’s also an interesting contrast in that the overall design of the house is Mid-Century Modern along with its interior furnishing- yes, believe it or not, we do work in periods other than the Victorian and Edwardian Eras. 🙂
Old School sewing machines fit in nicely anywhere…
Mid-Century Modern has always been one of our favorite periods because it provides such a contrast to the earlier Victorian/Edwardian Eras and it helps us maintain a sense of design perspective. In fashion design, it’s all too easy to lose one’s perspective when focusing on just one or two narrow periods so we like to mix it up a bit- think Dior’s New look and beyond… 🙂

Looking forward to 2018, we’re looking at creating some new exciting designs and otherwise taking advantage of what whatever opportunities present themselves. We wish all our clients and readers happy holidays and may your 2018 be prosperous. 🙂
We moved 12 old machines today, five were old treadles. So it’s Baccarat, Beefeater, and my feet in the cement pond for a while. Staying here for the week and sewing. Projects to finish, because the earth doesn’t stop rotating just because we’re relocating! No more heavy lifting for a while…awesome. 🙂
