It’s rare when a project this amazing falls into your lap. I got a call from a girl named Isabelle back in April. She said she had a friend who was looking to have a costume made for comi con in Chicago. She couldn’t take on the job herself and was looking for another seamstress to make her friend something special.
Not long after I receive this email.
I know Isabelle has contacted you with my idea for my mockingjay dress.
Here are some photos of the outfits I think (with your divine designs and mystic insights) could be made classy and outrageously cool.The dress is from the second book of the hunger games series. Catching fire. I don’t know if you’ve read em- but they’re great! here are the passages that talk about the dress.“Heavy white silk with a low neckline and tight waist and sleeves that fall from my wrists to the floor. And pearls. Everywhere pearls. Stitched into the dress and in ropes at my throat and forming the crown for the veil.”“Charred bits of black silk swirl into the air, and pearls clatter to the stage… I’m in a dress of the exact design of my wedding dress, only it’s the color of coal and made of tiny feathers. Wonderingly, I lift my long, flowing sleeves into the air, and that’s when I see myself on the television screen. Clothed in black except for the white patches on my sleeves. Or should I say my wings. Because Cinna had turned me into a mockingjay.”
I want the charred version… of course!
I have already spent a small fortune on materials and will still have to purchase more.
Lace three yards of it.- for wings
I also purchased the wig!
I’m trying to figure out how I want to style it/ what type of veil
I got these too- A cute little addition

Would you be up to meeting to talk about the design?

Thanks Kristy, for one of my most challenging projects. I would be grateful to work with more customers like you.
