I just recently finished this Vanilla silk taffeta mini bustle for an etsy client. I really love the color, it's hard to see in photos but its such a nice vanilla sort of color. Not super bright white, but not quite ivory either. I think it came out quite nice and since I haven't been all that busy I also took the time to do the inside of the waist by hand. I never used to have the patience for hand sewing, but I appreciate how much cleaner everything looks so I've started to make more time for it in my garments. It does take longer but it's certainly worth it.
It's really motivated me to start working on my bridal collection, which has been put on hold for quite some time now. Now that I have a bit more time, I'm really going to concentrate on my bridal wear and accessories. I'll try and post photos of some of my progress with that soon. I've been working on the skirt mostly, but will probably get started on cutting the corset pieces out tomorrow.
