I think I'm in Love

... with Claire Pettibone.
True story: They tell a newly engaged bride to tear out magazine pages. Keep a file of everything you like. I've been doing this with dresses for a while. Unbeknownst to me, over half of the dresses I kept filed in my Big Bridal Folder are from one designer: Claire Pettibone.

I always freak out when I sketch up a dress idea and then mysteriously find it in a designer's collection. Like this:

Love love love these looks:

I admit that I would secretly love to help support a family in China, rather than make the dress myself. Is that "Bad Sewist" ?

PS Blogger you are killing me with this spacing between paragraphs. ARG.

Yeah, not a huge fan of the new blogger interface. Hint: Do most of your writing in the "compose" tab, not the "html" tab.

Gorgeous dresses! The lace back is so elegant.
