A Dressmaker for Samantha’s Communion Dress

Trying to think of someone who could sew this dress and make it exactly how Samantha designed it was not a very fun task.  I worked with a seamstress during my college years but I know that my friend had moved away and traveling an hour for a fitting seemed like a torturous task and a last resort.  After asking a couple of my artsy friends if they knew of a dressmaker my friend suggested using a woman named Robin Agnew from Designs on You.  Robin’s workroom was close to home and would be amazing if it all worked out…..the Chichi Petal fabric is not the easiest to work with.

So, off Samantha and I went to meet with Robin and she was Perfect!  Robin understood what we wanted to do, you could tell that she was very talented and she agreed to take on our project, thank goodness.

Samantha’s first fitting with Robin was exciting, probably more for me than anyone.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the designing process!!!  Robin made a prototype of the dress out of muslin so that she would have a pattern to cut the real dress.  During that fitting Samantha decided on the fullness of the skirt, making sure that the dress was not too tight when walking, where the waist band would be placed,

the cut of the neckline and the length of the sleeve.  Robin also showed Samantha what the petal would look like on the bottom of the dress.

It really was so thrilling…… seeing something go from idea, to paper to implementation is awesome and this wasn’t even the real dress yet.

So, while Robin started to cut the fabric for Samantha’s dress……Samantha and I took a trip into NYC to meet with the company that makes our Couture Dreams Fleurs….we need Samantha’s bouquet and headpiece.  So….exciting!!!
