Cinderella by vani

Completed Cinderella gown for one of the loveliest ladies I know, Eve Beauregard~! It was such an honor to create this gown for her, and I had so much fun (maybe too much?) adding details. After the final fitting I decided to add an additional 1,440 crystals and 20 yards of tulle to the petticoat. The bodice, with custom cut and rhinestoned butterflies, is fully boned and the skirt features multi layers of netting and different shades and textures of organza.

I created a unique rendition of Padme Amidala's "Picnic" gown for a client for Star Wars Celebration! I love this design for it's beautiful pastel and floral palette. The bodice features custom dyed appliqués with hand-cut rosettes, all sewn on by hand, and the skirt is a sand-washed silk with beaded floral "bursts". Though my favorite detail is the pastel ribbons sweetly swinging from her wrists.

I asked beautiful :iconthe-sushi-monster: to model some of my creations for :iconjwaidesign: and a beautiful, golden hour, shoot resulted. I'm so happy with this second image from the set! The colors and watercolor pastel feel melt my heart :heart:
This gown is composed of hand-dyed lace, ombre silk and small flowers, all hand-sewn into place.

Swan Princess by vani
Swan Princess

I am overjoyed to announce that I will be attending Gala Nocturna, a romantic costumed event held in Belgium hosted by Viona-Art. I have followed her work for a decade and have, along with my friend :iconlillyxandra: of Firefly Path (www.firefly-path.net) dreamed of attending one of Viona's enchanting events. This year my long-awaited wish is finally coming true!

This year the theme for the Gala is Swan Princess so I decided to create a flowing gown inspired by the innocence and beauty of Odette from "Swan Lake".
This design features many hand-crafted details such as a feathered corset, custom-made rosettes, Swarovski crystal and sequin detailing, a golden crown and hand-fabricated wings. I hope you enjoy!

Thank you so much!! :heart: I have been sewing for over 10 years, and while I took courses in school, I've learned so much from trial and error as well as from friends. There is also a wealth of knowledge online (articles, YouTube) that is super helpful! I wish you the best with your creations!!

plus, where do you buy your materials from?

I purchase most of my materials from fabric stores near me. Some of my Rapunzel trim is hand-made and some of it is purchased. :)
Good luck with your creations!! :heart:
