Michaela is a young woman working in corporate America in New York. She wanted more something more than just plain black or navy suits to wear to work. She approached me requesting a a fun and colorful dress to wear to work. I came up with the idea of using my home to inspire a New York work dress. While the original design was in a pastel pink, after consideration, I made the decision to create the Texan Wildflowers dress in a pastel blue, and do unique clusters of beading in the pink dress.  Both dresses are made from the same pattern, which I created by hand. After taking Michaela's measurements, I adjusted the pattern to fit her perfectly and only had minor adjustments to make after the muslin fitting. Posh Pink  has hand beaded clusters, each a different design. The Texan Wildflower dress is hand embroidered. I first drew the flowers on the dress, and then used an embroidery hoop to stabilize the tear-away interfacing to the fabric while I created each of the flowers.
