My model !
My Red Dragonfly Gala Dresspublished in, Belle Amoire, Summer 2012, Page 46. I had the pleasure of having my niece Peyton Carroll model the dress and it was a feature at the Tri City Fashion Show, 2013, Modeled by Sara. It has graced many events and won the Donated award 2013 from American Sewing Guild! Hand embellished and embroidered. It not only won 1st place at the San Diego fair, but also won the prestigious Donated Award, gifting me a membership for a year to the American Sewing Guild, which ehanced and changed my life. Before this award, I did not think I could sew, due to poor sewing skills confidence. Also included in the photo is my green Envy Dress and Asian Flower sun Dress.
Trish began sewing at a very young age in the sun parlor of her grandmother and her lady friends in Tampa, Florida. Her grandmother operated a local boarding home on the corner of the Famous Bayshore Blvd, that even had a wishing well and a flower garden. The women would discuss local news, politics, religion, books, education, community interests while embroidering, sewing, knitting, tatting, making baskets, painting both acrylic and watercolors, while someone was always playing the piano and break into song. Everyone wore the most beautiful aprons to cover their day dresses, as a southern woman, was always in decor in case guest stopped by. Thus the beginning of her creative clothing.
Trish had won numerous and prestigious sewing awards for her creations: American Sewing Guild, San Diego Fair, Cover of Apron.olgy Magazine 2013, Stampington & Company, featured in 4 Apronology magazines, Home Magazine all for her aprons. Her Couture Clothing & Jewelry has been displayed and featured in fashion shows, Published in Altered Couture, Belle Amoire, , Belle Amoire Jewelry and Sew Sommerset.
All of Trish’s aprons are one of a kind, individually and hand designed and sewn.
I found this expensive eyelet material at a local sewing store and knew I had to have it. I realized after I made this apron, it reminded me of my Southern Roots and how sometimes when creating and hosting an event, I could look oh so beautiful and southern in this apron. Skirt is lined with white lace material (same as bib), Embellished with lace, ribbon, buttons to give it a retro feel.
Both my SWEET DAISY DOTS AND THE MOTHER OF ALL APRONS, are used in various advertisements for Stampington Press Magazines.
