Burdastyle Charcoal Modal Cotton Cross Over Long Crop Dress

burdastyle crop dress charcoal long

I made this dress for my trip to Europe last year. I heard Europeans wear pants and long dresses, so I made the dress long with side slits.  I didn’t take photos of the dress in Europe, but I grabbed a few photos when I wore it to a dinner & dance last May. I don’t like tight dresses so I made size 38. (I normally wear size 36.) The shoulders were a bit too wide for my shoulders and taste.      ...

Burdastyle Hand Embroidered Linen Easter Dress 2018

EASTER Ukrainian embroidered burdastyle anagrassia dress 26

Every year I chose my Easter dress pattern and embroidery at the beginning of Lent. I then work on it and any other spiritual goals I may have until the big day arrives. I am joined by my entire family who tries to take advantage of this seasonal opportunity. It is often a chore, especially when the weather is so dreary. But prayerful persistence is rewarded with a colorful riot of creativity and design on Easter morning when it all manifests itself in embroidery, clothes, icons, pysanky, decorative breads and other delicious food. It is funny how my father (who is the only non-Ukrainian among us), seems to appreciate it...

The NEW Bergé (Flower Girl) Dress

Flower girl dress lace embroidery bubble

Here are some photos of the new Bergé Dress. (Some photos show the early skirt samples- with no embroidery and different fabrics.) Ukrainian Easter eggs, Imperial Fabergé eggs and Beranger, a musician who I worked with while I finalized the dress design, inspired the design and name, Bergé. This design is for the fun and chic girls!  There’s a separate petticoat to wear under the skirt- for a fuller/bubble appearance. (Gigi is not wearing the petticoat in the b/w photos.) I am (currently) not accepting (any) customers or orders. However if time permits, I will take orders for the Bergé Dress in late May and June. (The design is only available as a FULL dress. Different laces and sleeve designs...

Ivory Silk Chiffon & White Guipure Lace Baptismal Christening Gown

Anagrassia Baptismal Christening Gown Silk Lace Ivory White Organza Charmeuse Sash Satin Buttons Couture Sewing Handmade Dress Girls Wedding Floral Alencon grey

I made this gown at the last moment for my friend’s little girl, M. I used ivory silk chiffon, diamond white silk charmeuse, and white guipure lace. (I would’ve dyed the lace, but the lace stands out when the lining is a different shade.)  I chose this guipure lace from my stock because it looked the most nordic and M’s ancestors are from Sweden....
