This year I have been very busy with weddings. I was told at the beginning of the year it would be quiet as 2013 is an unlucky year for some!
Prom dresses kept me busy for ten weeks, never before have I seen so many beautiful colours and designs. Many were bought from the internet and given to me to alter.
Christenings were popular this year. Christening gowns can be made from the fabric of a wedding dress which can be a great keepsake.
Next year looks as if it will be very busy. The feel-good factor is coming back and people are looking forward to the future.
I have already altered several wedding dresses and I have taken orders for some made to measure dresses for next year. The 1950s look is still very popular!
This year I have made and altered dresses for three same sex weddings. It’s great to work on two outfits at the same time, and make sure that they co-ordinate with each other. It’s lovely to meet both partners, as usually I only get to meet the bride!
