Here I am wearing the "Flying Dress" from Titanic.
I had this custom made and went all out on the fabrics. Silk charmeuse and silk velvet, cats eye beads, and scrumptious lace. Much research goes into recreating these gowns. Just trying to match the velvet and silk charmeuse swatches was a challenge! My seamstress, Christine, is just wonderful to work with! http://www.ckhall.com/
The hand bag is an antique from the edwardian era.

Next I shall post a GWTW frock. This time I'll give an example of a garment I am embellishing. This is a red velvet dress that I got on ebay for $25. I know the original gown was burgundy, but hey... this dress had potential! It was a simple collumn dress with HUGE puffy sleeves. I removed the sleeves, added the stones, and by a miracle found a red velvet to match well enough to make a train. This gown is still in the works, but you get the idea!
