The Linda Bolero

Linda Bolero

The Linda Bolero is a feminine bold design.  I named it after my loving sister who possesses so many beautiful qualities that is hard to express in words.   In this design, I wanted to express her tender yet strong persona.  She is a loving and passionate person who has amazing inner strength.  This inner strength allows her to persevere and succeed in all that she does.  I hope this piece captures the beauty and give you a glimpse of who she is.

Sketch: AMANDA V. Junior Bridesmaid Gown

Illustration of Junior Bridesmaid Gown for Amanda V.

After studying the inspiration board, researching fabrics, notions, and details, I finally had the opportunity to sketch the Junior Bridesmaid gown.  The sketch gives my Guest a visual of how the gown would look when complete.  From this point, we can discuss & modify accordingly before cutting the muslin fabric, which is a very crucial part of the custom fit.

Notes:  Solid Pink Silk Satin Fabric for Bodice, Satin Pink Floral Fabric with touches of Blue for Skirt, Silk Organza lining, Hand sew blue glass beads for accent colors.
