The First Unveiling

It’s finished! I think I like it. I’m not in the mood to take good photos. I will try to get some detail shots next week. For now, the front and the back…

    Words fail me. It’s stunning, beautiful, exquisite…. I think I need a thesaurus to continue commenting.

    The amount of work and detail is amazing and the colors dazzle and play off each other. I can only imagine what it looks like in person with textures and shine…What a triumph!

    What can be said but…STUNNING! Beautifully done! I absolutely LOVE the colour combination and the design work is brilliantly executed…

    I have to say: the most beautiful clothes I see these days are made not by couturiers, but by private individuals with a love of sewing…just about everything I look at in the fashion mags and in the supposedly “high-end’ stores is nothing but garbagy, poorly finished “sad sacks” not worth a fraction of the money charged! It’s great to know that someone can now make themselves a dress, suit or gown that beats ‘store-bought’ all to hell; we have come FULL CIRCLE, ladies: “home-made” clothing has finally shaken off its stigma and is now soaring to heights FAR FAR above “store-bought”!

    What I love best about your clothes are how many layers there are to the work – I don’t necessarily mean physical layers, though you did that this time, but all the layers of thought and process that go into making your pieces. This is beautiful on the dress form, but I can’t wait to see what it looks like on – it’s definitely a dress that needs to be worn to be fully appreciated.

    This is one of those dresses that screams precision sewing at its finest, Claudine. You chose difficult fabrics to work with and did an amazing job with them. You’re going to wow the attendees at the party to which you wear this lovely gown. Be prepared to garner tons of well-deserved compliments.
