New Vintage Items in my Etsy Shop

I have gathered quite a collection of vintage bridal and evening wear over the years and will slowly be adding items to my Etsy shop. It's a long process of taking photos, editing photos, taking measurements, and creating listings.

I have created an illustration to help shopper's understand exactly how I measure my garments. I will add this link directly to listings. I hope this helps alleviate any measurement mishaps while making vintage purchases.

Here are a few items that have made it into my shop this week.

1980's Ivory Evening Gown/Second Wedding Gown

1970's Jersey Bridal Gown with Rhinestone & Pearl Accents

1990's Sequins Accent Jacket

What's New in 2015

It's been over a year now since I've updated my blog. I've missed doing so. I guess with Facebook and Twitter these days I haven't felt the need to visit my blog for updates. So here are a few things I have been up to over the past year.

For instance, I added a new sketch that I call the Full Body Gown Sketch. This sketch allows me to capture the beauty of a bride and often a groom's attire on a figure with the client's likeness.

I have also begun collecting more and more vintage bridal gowns, hats, jewelry and accessories. New items will appear slowly over time in my Etsy shop.

I recently took a wonderful bridal gown from the 1980's and repurposed it into an Infant's Christening Gown. This is something I hope to continue to do in the future if the right gown happens to come my way.

The Christening Gown will be on sale soon in my Etsy shop. Please stop by my shop or email me at mhveils@yahoo.com for further enquiries.
