Heeeeey, Sunday afternoon catch up time. LOTS gone on this week! Very exiting times, but as usual can't actually disclose any info or pics as it's all top secret and very hush hush. Poop.
So we shall start with Festival costumes for the looming Fareham Festival. Brand new character duet for Sue Merrett School of Dance(ers), based on the story of the AMAZING Disney film 'Frozen'. Dancer friendly costume interpretations of Anna and Elsa - one piece, slight stretch, voluminous skirts.
Elsa - (unfinished)
New logo time for Elizabeth van Stone. I know it doesn't mean much to anyone else but my business is like my baby and I'm very proud of how it's grown and continuing to do so. Thank you to everyone who has trusted me and supported my work, love you all lots and I feel very privileged to be the one making you all look b-e-a-utiful and showing off your gorgeous figures!! <3
And now it is time to finish the catch up, it's time to go and enjoy the first day of British summer time which has actually turned out to be soooo sunny!! Also happy Mothers Day to all those mummys out there. MASSIVE happy Mothers Day to my mumma who is the very best in the world!!!
<3 <3 <3
Afternooooooon all. Just a thought about alterations/adjustments for hemlines, bodices, straps, sleeves etc - particularly for Prom dresses and also not forgetting Suits for the boys.
Again, very difficult to give a price list for alterations as every garment is constructed differently with linings and seams and pain in the bum stuff like that. The best I can do is estimate that...
For the girls...
Basic hem line alteration - £20
Bodice reconstruction - £30
Shoulder-strap alteration - £5
For the boys...
Suit cuff alteration - £20
Suit tailoring - £35
Trouser hem lift - £5
So without seeing what needs to be nipped and tucked, those are my best estimates. Could be more, could be less depending on original construction.
You can drop me an email, or contact through Facebook. xx
Well well well, if you were searching for inspiration for the perfect evening/prom dress..... OSCAR alert!!! I think this has been the most amazing covert night for flashing the fashion yet!! ermagurd.
For starters I think we can say with some confidence that the fishtail silhouette is in BIG time. YEY for two reasons; one, it is my all time fave shape, and two, it is such a flattering line.
Peplums were also a popular feature, along with pleating, gathering , and draping. Lots of glitz, which is always appreciated.... although Lady GaGa looked like she was gunna bust out into a rendition of 'Let it go'.
Deff deff deff go and google Oscars 2014 and have a snoop around at all the totally amazing dresses. I shall share my aaaaabsolute fave with you..... <3
