Thank you so much everybody for your kind comments about the Coronation dress! We really enjoyed making it and are so excited that it came out so well! (And Lisette just can’t get over the fact that one of our dresses is going to be in a movie…)
I’m posting today to tell you our very exciting news: we’re going to bring a new girl on staff! Her name is Sophia and she’s extremely beautiful, so once she arrives from Chicago I’m sure you’ll see her modelling dresses.
We got Sophia’s resume last year when we were looking for another model, but since she’s from Chicago, we weren’t going to be able to do an interview, and we opted to hire Lisette instead (she’s a local girl). However, Samantha had to be in Chicago on business this week, so we asked Sophia if she was still interested in coming to work for us. The answer was a resounding “yes”, and she’ll arrive at our studio in about a week! Samantha really likes her, so of course the rest of us can’t wait to meet her…
In other news, Sew Expo (www.sewexpo.com) is this week, and some subset of us are going on Friday! I (Melinda) am going for sure, and possibly Melody; but we’re all working on the list of things to look for. It’s getting to be very large already… and we still have five more days to go!
And, because posts need pictures, here is one of a crocus out front of our studio (they are already blooming, probably because the weather has been incredibly warm and sunshine-y lately, not at all like February normally is!):
Also, we’re working on a date for the Spring Line and hope to be able to tell you more about it within the next couple of weeks or so…
