GET IN THE STUDIO...

 

This is a one woman operation with a lot of support! Everything is hand made and custom designed to the specific project. I use a large amount of reclaimed elements that are not found in stores. This makes every custom piece unique and unable to be reproduced. I pull elements from many different places and waste as little as possible. My workspace is scattered with pieces of lace, trim, and fabric that I have pulled together for one piece or another. My sewing machine has a pillowcase beside it that I put all of my fabric scraps in to recycle into dog beds for the local animal shelter. I have three dress forms: Ms. Ilean-who only has three legs and falls over a lot, Lady in red- who is my newest form and is obviously red, and The Naked Lady- she is a permanent dress form that I use for draping.

I guess you could say I stumbled into the business, but was born with the passion. I am a gardener, beekeeper, homesteader, and lover of all things essential to an older way of life. My business is inspired by the willow. When you want to grow a new plant from an existing plant, you take a cutting and place it in a cup of willow water.

The willow naturally produces a rooting hormone that encourages the cutting form roots. Without the willow, this cutting would simply be a dead stick, but the hormone allows the cutting to become a new and beautiful plant. 

 

Like the willow, I take things that would otherwise be lost, strip them down, and turn them into something beautiful. I hate to see a beautiful old dress, tablecloth, window treatment thrown away just because it is out of style or considered damaged or useless. I can look through what is and see what can be. It is truly my passion to recover, grow, and gain inspiration from the world around me. I look forward to the beauty I have yet to see.

Big shout out for (Wisteria Way Designs)! My oldest daughter was in need of an authentic antebellum dress for Tuscaloosa Belles. Lacie is the epitome of a professional seamstress. She communicates effectively & seeks her client's opinions. Her attention to detail & craftsmanship is impressive and her stitches are just beautiful. We highly recommended this company.

Lacie is amazing! From conception, to design to execution- her ideas are brilliant, different and beautiful. She always has unique work and she's out of this world talented. She's making a custom gown for me, and I just picked up a maternity gown for one of my clients! Absolutely stunning! Looking forward to working with her more and collaborating on new designs!

I had a vision for a maternity dress that I wanted a client to wear for her session and Lacie whipped it up beautifully!!
