The Scituate Education Foundation has invited local artists to participate in a community-wide artistic collaboration in support of the organization’s fundraising efforts. The “Extra|OAR|dinary Auction” will showcase more than a dozen hand painted and embellished wooden oars, transformed by talented, local artists of all ages! The oars will be available to bid on at the Scituate Town Library in March and at Scituate Education Foundation’s 2nd annual spring event, “Light up the Night” held at Kennedy’s Country Gardens on April 7, 2018.
The auction of my “Coastal Couture” designed Oar starts Wednesday, February 28th at the Scituate Town Library!
Come see me at The Kings Jewelry Bridal Showcase on March 24 from 10am-4pm!!! Meet me in person to discuss your ideas, projects, alterations or occasion dress needs.
Kelly came to me after purchasing her beautiful gown for some very needed detailed alterations. I took up the many layered hems, then applied the beaded scallop hem by machine. I took in the lace, beaded side seams so it showed off the dress’ mermaid silhouette. I restructured, restyled, and shortened the back straps. Instead of having the given ribbon belt just tied, I created a flat bow that snapped at back waist so the bow would appear perfect each time. Finally, I created a three point French bustle that let Kelly dance all evening.
For her mom’s lace dress I created front french darts and back princess darts to show off her waist. I also leveled her hem so she could join Kelly on the dance floor.
Jenna came to me with her grandmother’s vintage lace wedding gown. She wanted to somehow incorporate it into her big day festivities. Before and after, uncanny. #vintagerehearsaldinnerlaceskirt
Vintage family velvet burnout wedding gown remade into a blouse. Original everything, as you can see I worked around stains and holes. Always love a challenge!
Alterations we did have been removed carefully, including the bustle. It is ready for a new bride to enjoy. On sale soon at www.preownedwedddingdresses.com
