I've been doing quite a bit of sewing lately.  I have a client that I'm making several business casual dresses and jumpers for, but I'm most excited about a project that my daughter and I are collaborating on for this coming Spring.  We're working on a bridal portrait styled shoot.   I'll be providing the gown and she'll be capturing the images.   Wedding gowns are my all-time favorite project since I get to use every ounce of my creativity along with my sewing skills. 
This gown is going to be a lace overlay, very romantic with an A-line silhouette.  I found some wonderful satin and lace here locally which can be a challenge.  But I had great success at a shop called Allyn's in Denver.   If you've never been, it's a crazy little shop that is chock-full of fabrics, laces, trims, etc.   It can be completely frustrating, since it is so disorganized....but so exhilarating when you find what you're looking for!  It's a treasure trove of goodies.
This is just a sneak peek ..... I'll be posting pics of the completed
gown once we've finished the project.  I hope then to be able to sell it to a boutique here in town.    The fabrics and trims are so beautiful that I've already changed up the the design a bit from my original sketch to highlight some of the unique features of the lace.  Stay tuned!
