“A dress has no life of its own unless it is worn, and soon as this happens another personality takes over from you and animates it.” -Elsa Schiaparelli  _____________________ Even though every Anagrassia special occasion dress is hand made (by me) and customized for each girl & event/wedding, the Anagrassia dress does not take life of its own until it’s worn by the customer.  One of the best parts of my job is to receive customer photos and see how each one animates their dresses!  Here are some beautiful photos I recently received of flower girls wearing Anagrassia creations in a Viennese wedding.  Not only did I very much like the style and colors the bride chose,...

Chloe’s First Holy Communion Dress from Mother’s Wedding Dress

White Embroidered Communion Dress Recycled Made from Wedding gown flower girl full skirt pink floral

This was one special dress to make! Not only was this dress made from her mother’s wedding dress/skirt, I was also a bridesmaid in the wedding! When Chloe arrived for her first fitting/planning session in December, her mom arrived with plans to create a less poofy A-line pleated skirt dress. (A design you often see for First Holy Communion dresses.) But these plans were quickly nixed, when Chloe and her siblings spun and danced around in the sample poofy tulle skirts and dresses in my studio.  Chloe convinced us to make the dress bigger and the skirt circle cut (for spinning purposes)!  Watch Chloe Spin in the final dress here  Keeping the full hem of the skirt...

Unlike most people, I never considered the new year beginning January 1st. Through my school years, my new year began in late August and I counted the years by my grade. Now I no longer count my years that way, but it’s still not the first of the year. Now my new year starts on Easter. Anyone who knows me well, knows how much I HATE Lent. Between the unpredictable and depressing weather, greatly missing my sister overseas, and making restrictions on my favorite daily indulgences, this is by far the hardest time of year for me. It’s the time of year I’m forced to dig deep, make changes, and...

Photos by Photography by Anastassia Have you ever found a beautiful fabric that was so perfect that you were afraid to do anything with it? A bad design or an errant cut could ruin it forever (or so you think). This red tweed was definitely such a challenge. During a Christmas 2014 sale, I purchased an absolutely amazing red tweed wool fabric and honey leather buttons from Britex Fabrics. I had my eyes on the red tweed for a very long time before I purchased it. The price was well over $100/yd and I wasn’t sure if the material and colors were as vibrant as they appeared to be online....
