This silver evening gown is my original design.  It is made of and
a draped midriff.

The dress is embellished with hand strung glass beads which
were then braided.  Custom dyed Alencon lace was added to the
bodice and Swarovski crystals were applied to the center midriff
panel.

It was completed in September 2011
Glass beads were used over a
flowered embroidery pattern.  
Again Swarovski crystals were
used to make up the flower petals
This flower girl dress is my Original
design.   Made of Royal blue Crepe
back satin, It features princess and
ruched short sleeves.
Glass beads were
sewn to the
gathers on the
sleeves
  The full crinoline
was dyed to match
the fabric and cut to
hang just below the
tea length hemline.  
Wide Ribbon was
added to the bottom
of the crinoline.

The wrap around
sash gives the
illusion of a drape
across the midriff.  
Madison looked
like she fell right
off the page of a
storybook.

This dress done in
White would be
perfect for first
communion,  
A cut out was done on the
back of the dress.  Glass
beads were hand strung, the
strap across the back.  The
strap was fastened with
invisible snaps for easy on
and off.
This black close fitting,  evening gown is a classic.  It is made of sturdy embroidered satin,
has a boned foundation and inside belt.  Both the jacket and the dress are lined in china
silk.  The dress is hand beaded with glass beads and Swarovski crystals.    It was
completed April 2010

Because of the scalloped bottom, this dress requires a custom fit.

added to the back to

length dress is made
of brocade.  The
heaviness of this lush
fabric was perfect for
a winter ball.

trimmed with blue ribbon
and  was not attached to the
dress so it could be worn
with or without the extra
fullness.
When sleeves were a
must, these three quarter
long tapered sleeves
were ruched at the top
which gave plenty of
room for movement and
This gown is my
original design.  It was completed in 8 days.  December 2009

After Nicki Minaj
premiered her video  
"Moment 4 Life"
I was asked to make this
dress.
The 2 toned Tulle skirt
and Duchess satin train
were attached to the
client's corset with
covered buttons.  
This was such a fun
project to work on for this
stylish young woman.  

Completed May 2011
This was the original
look I was attempting
to recreate.
The gown. Originally by
designer Badgely
Mishka, is 2 pieces.  An A
line dress with spaghetti
straps, and an elegant
lace jacket.  
I got a call from a woman whose
world. She told me that her mom
wanted to have something special
to wear when she was laid to rest,
for she wanted to look beautiful
when she saw her husband again.
Special attention to detail was the
key to this project, as her mom will
be wearing it for eternity.
The base of the dress was made
with crepe back satin.  Light pink
sparkle organdy was used on the
bodice overlay.
Alencon lace was dyed to match
the color of the dress.  Beads and
sequins from the lace were added
as embellishments.
Pink Ribbon lace was purchased
for the base of the jacket.
The ribbon lace on
the jacket was
backed by the
sparkle organdy
The Jacket is made from
embellished Chantilly Ribbon lace,
backed with a sparkle organdy.  
The Alencon lace trim on the
bottom is attached.
What more can I say about
the Elegance of the jacket.  
It speaks for itself!
Sleeve Detail
Cloth bridal buttons were
dyed to match the gown.  
Loops were also dyed and
applied to close the
buttons.
The spaghetti straps were not
appropriate for the client.  The
pattern was altered to make the
bodice sleeveless with a scoop
neck.  Pearls were added to the
neckline.
This gown was a final gift to my mother, Patricia Dembitsky.   Although my mom could not sew a stitch, she was the one who encouraged me to sew,
and realized my talent.  I lost my mom in February 2013, she was laid to rest in this elegant turquoise Gown.  She looked like a queen.
This is a one piece gown with embellished
lace falling just below the hips.  Lace motifs
were placed on the bottom of the dress.
The back of the
gown is closed
with an invisible
zipper.
The lace motifs and scalloped
edges are embellished with
sparkling glass beads.  
Covered buttons at the
sleeve openings.
This Downton Abby inspired prom
gown is made from two toned
taffeta under sparkle tulle.

Lace motifs, glass beads,
Swarovski crystals, and designer
sequins make up the butterfly
design on the front of the gown.    
Lace motifs are scattered on the
skirt, with scallops finishing off the
bottom.

A long bow made of
black mesh was added
to the back for a
dramatic effect.

The gown is fully lined
in china silk.

It was completed Spring
of 2012

Amber's Prom Gown April 2018
I was commissioned by Amber's Dad to create this custom made dress for his daughter's
first prom.    It fits her perfectly
.
This year Amber gave me total artistic
freedom, her one request was that it be
red..
I acquired the sequined lace directly
from China at quite a bargain.
I was this far before I remembered to take pics.  
The lace is sewn to the stretch charmeuse
underskirt.
The fishtail skirt is made from shimmer
tulle with a horsehair braid hem.
A peplum was added for a smooth
transition.
Prom day finally arrived!  I had no words!
There were so many beautiful pictures,
it was difficult to choose just a few.

I saw this gorgeous piece of lace and just had to
have it.
Then I met this lovely young lady, it was meant to be.
I rolled it around in my head for about a year and
came up with this.
I started with a base of baby blue stretch
charmeuse.
Plotting the Yoke
The yoke attached to the bodice.
This is when I really got excited
about this gown.
Third time was a charm!.
This was skirt number
one, I hated it.  I don't
even want to talk about
skirt #2.
