Thank You Josie!

This was a tough challange for us!  A wonderful woman and her beautiful daughter asked to come by and talk to me about a graduation dress.  I'm always up for the challenge but teenage girls have their likes and dislikes and I wanted to be certain we could deliver.  So I took notes for my seamstress, smiled the whole time , but I was a bit nervous.  She and her mom had looked everywhere and I didn't want them waiting for two weeks and then not be sure so I told them to keep looking while we worked on it because unfortunately custom anything can be dissapointing if  interpretations don't match up.  First round I wasn't sure how it would hang and so added a ruffle at the bottom for extra weight.  Josie a girl with a fashion sense of her own , did not like the ruffle but everything else was perfect.  I was so glad she could speak her mind and ask for what she wanted…So a week later the ruffle nowhere in sight , Josie was giddy with the results of her creation and so was her mom!  So here you have the results of this fine, perfectly tailored dress, we named "The Josie Dress".   It is totally her design and we couldn't be happier with the results.  So thank you Josie!!
