A dress for Prom…

27 Jul

Two weeks before I had to leave for my Vancouver trip I agreed to make a prom dress for my sister in laws sister in law. Ha ha, if that makes any sense to anyone?? She is very tall, stunning and very thin. This was a very exciting project for me, one I wanted to complete in less then 20 hours. I am very proud to say that I did complete it in 18hours. Ofcourse it wasn’t a total of 18 hours in one day but over one week. The hem has fishing wire to help the dress look like it’s flowing in the air.

This is not my design, my model really wanted this gown for her prom, so here it is 🙂

The Process

Fitting and Pinning

Behind the scenes!

This really was a fun project for me and I really loved the model who the dress was made for. I had a good time at the photo shoot at Central Park!!! Thanks Rakee Photography and also a big thanks to my sister in law for the behind the scenes pics during the process!! xx


Grading process

21 Jul


Producing a line is HARD WORK!!! I knew this as I began the process, but I can’t say that I’m not enjoying it. So now I’m done all the pattern making and sample making and I’m onto making each size which is called grading. My sized insha’Allah will run from S- XL. I will in the future go up to XXL.

I’ve met so many interesting and helpful people along the way. I have also learned a lot from them and sometimes I get advice from someone totally unexpected. I really appreciate all the support and most of all I appreciate my husband’s support. He is my ROCK and helps me hold myself together. SUBHAN ALLAH…I am really blessed to have him in my life!

PS: Thanks Priya for the behind the scenes pix!!! xx
Stay tuned for more updates..x
