These two cuties are wearing my most recent custom tunics. They both wanted something unique to their personality. Suzanne wanted fleur de lis’ on her tunic. Joanie had a floral in mind with specific colors. When I work, I take the information from the client, process it in my designer head and paint a way. Well, sort of. I do a little more planning than that. I might do a sketch first for the idea, test a sample piece of silk and show the concept to the client. I know these ladies would have been happy with just about anything but I think it’s important to grasp what’s inside their minds so they are thrilled with the end result.
The floral piece took a bit more planning because I wanted to make sure the rosette flower did not sit over her chi-chi but carefully placed above it and the other flower near the waist on the other side. To add more magenta accents, I added rose ribbons on the arms. On Suzanne’s blue top, I added rhinestone grommets and gold french crowns for the tassels.
If you know someone who needs something unique for a special day whether it’s an anniversary, wedding, party, or just for every day, I’d love to create that one-of-a-kind piece for them. Maybe, it’s you!!
