Spring Panache 2011 was today!!! 4.16.11

  The model wearing the houndstooth is Vogue 8465 viewb. I altered the collar so that it was not so asymetrical. The model wearing the zebra pattern is Butterick 4865, I love this pattern. Actually, they are both one of my favorites. And don't the models look lovely!!!!!
 I added beads to the collar on the zebra print.
 My outfit is Vogue 1195, just the top with the tie. I didn't have time to make the dress....I probably won't either now that the fashion show is over. I will be moving on to my next collection for fashion week in Pittsburgh which is in Sept 2011. I hand sewed the beads and sequins on the neckline of this top.
 This dress is my Own creation. I draped it on the dressform and hand stitched the gathers and machine stitched the hem and the one armhole. I will probably try this again with different tucks to see what I can come up with. This was fun.!!
This me and Rosa. Rosa helped me so much during the preparation of the show. It was such a blessing to work with her. She and I will be planning a shopping trip to NY garment district real soon and you know aI can't wait!!!
