guest blogger elisabeth: the dress


I don’t know if you remember (or care to remember) the few posts I did about wedding dresses last summer. Well two weeks ago I sat down with Daniel Faucher, an unbelievably talented couturier whose dress-making studio just so happens to be down the hallway, five (or six?) doors away from my letterpress studio.

And we have a dress. I think. In swiss dot and other white-on-white cotton voiles, with a bit of other things mixed in. Hopefully not too much overall, more about texture and shape than embellishment. It will ultimately be a hybrid of the two above.

And! The best part is that the bottom tiers will be a separate skirt. Which means that after we have said our vows and eaten our dinner, I can dance in a short dress and sparkly heels and feel like I’m at a kickass party.


  1. Elisabeth, I love the idea of a convertible dress. Very smart. Before you’re blogging time expires, I’ve tagged you.
    Tag you’re it! I’ve tagged you in the blogging game, here’s how it works:

    ~ blog seven things about yourself
    ~ link the person that tagged you in the blog entry
    ~ “tag” several other fave bloggers at the end of your post!
