It’s that time of year again, Prom!!
I am so fortunate that I am able to make a prom dress for my sons girlfriend again this year. Alexus has been a part of our family for 2 1/2 years, and is very dear to my heart. She is also my model for my Etsy shop, you can see her in action at……. http://www.etsy.com/shop/blackravencreations
I really like the material she picked out, aqua, blue, and black paisley, and a shear chiffon.
The dress will be a short strapless dress with a shear overlay on the skirt.
I think it will turn out beautiful!!
This is the dress I made for Alexus for last years prom. The handsome young man is my son!!
About Black Raven Creations
I love to create things and am one of those people who has to keep my hands busy. I have always been this way. If I am not "creating" in some form I tend to get depressed and blue. I spent many hours at my Grandmother's knees learning how to china paint, knit, and crochet. My home is now filled with items I have created thanks to my Grandmother!! She was a great and loving teacher and I was an eager learner.
I have not only filled my house with my creations, but I have filled other family members homes as well. My oldest son told me recently "no more", he will not accept another painting, quilt, or wall hanging of any sort...his walls are filled!!
Since my friends and families homes are filled, I have acquired a large pile of finished products... I was encouraged for years to open an Etsy shop, So I finally did!! In my shop you will find my creations using a wide range of textiles all created and made by my hands lovingly taught by my Grandmothers hands. All items are 100% handmade!! There are paintings, hand-stitched items, knitted and crocheted items, sewn items and many more.
I hope you enjoy investigating my shop and if you have any questions just ask me. I am looking foward to running my shop and getting to meet new and exciting people. I hope to be able to service this community for many years.
The dress looks like it’s going to turn out great! I really like the paisley pattern. Alexus is lucky to have you as a dress maker.
I make some of my own clothes, mostly because I don’t like what I see in the shops and (apart from wanting to seriously damage the sewing machine when it stops working) I really enjoy it.
Best of luck
Thanks Maisie!! I do love to create beautiful clothes for her, she has a great figure…making clothes for my figure not as much fun!!!
