I went to Maui to visit my boyfriend's family. I designed a couple new dresses for the trip. I actually ended up fixing my boyfriend's mother's sewing machine and sewing them while there. Therefore they aren't the best sewn, and may still get some tweaking yet. Click the Read More! link to see a preview of some new designs I'm working on for you all, including one for you bombshells.
There's actually a toppled over ship in the background of these images of the ocean.
This dress was inspired by a regency dress I saw and a popular style of Victorian dress for girls.
I had to try and keep up the tradition of taking photos with these things in sailor dresses.
I finally figured out how to make a wing bust and faux sarang style dress! This style will be available soon in store for all you bombshells.
This is all one tree, by the way. All these photos of trees is actually just one. This banyan tree is the largest in the world, recorded anyways.
It was pretty clean and bug free too.
Those little hanging things grow down and some of them become the new faux trunk-like things
I fell pretty soon after taking these. It was me or the dress. I chose the dress and luckily managed to avoid any injuries myself.
Oh, and I have a purse shaped like a coconut now. It is awesome.
We rode the train, and I got engaged. But more on that later.
It's called the sugar cane train but there was no suger cane.
I made a hula dress too. It's a pretty simple, classic. It'll likely be jazzed up a bit the next time you see it.
A lot of famous people stayed at this hotel. They even shot that step by step hawaiian episode here, apparently.
There were giant koi in this pond, the biggest I've ever seen. They could barely keep themselves underwater.
The lobby of the hotel.
We came to the hotel to eat at this restaurant.
Their breakfast wasn't very good.
Another restaurant we had breakfast in. This time, it was on a mountain.
I couldn't wear heels everywhere.
This is my exotic kitty dress. The bodice is designed to look a bit like a wild cat's head.
It also has a lot of very subtle kitty cat details.
The trim on the hem has little cats embroidered on it.
If you click through to the big size pictures, you can see the cats I embroidered all over the skirt
It's a pretty comfortable dress, made in a linen blend.
I also gave it a zip down the back and two pockets, making it a perfect dress for me to run errands in.
