Wow! Happy New Years to everyone, especially to Courtney – who worked SO hard to make this awesome NYE party frock! I can’t imagine a better way to ring in the new year than by wearing a stunning dress that you’ve made for yourself. Courtney used black satin, black lace, satin bias tape and put in HOURS of hard work both at the studio and at home to finish this stunning piece. The lace is very delicate and fragile, so everything was hand stitched before it was machine sewn. It is a perfect fit, and taking the extra time to sew up a muslin for yourself is totally worth it when you get that ‘custom’ look at the end. Even the bias tape was hand-made AND hand-stitched to match the satin of the dress. Courtney was so patient and careful with her beautiful dress, and it was obviously worth it – this really is a couture garment and I can’t wait to see what she whips up for herself next!
Courtney also runs an Etsy shop called Woolly Bully where she sells her own crocheted scarves, shawls and even coffee cup cozies! They are the most adorable things ever, and I was lucky enough to get one for Christmas this year! I use mine all the time. Congrats on your awesome work, Courtney!
