Alterations Gallery



  I love to design little treasures.  At first I only made designs for myself to complete the looks I wanted.  Then I started making designs for my  friend Frigeon.  Some folks liked what I did and would ask me for help with their weddings.  Now I gladly help anyone seeking some advice on creating their own fabulous designs.

RESOURCES:
Often I will research every detail of a design that I am working on to make sure I have the proper term in mind for the description I'm aiming for.  This is a listing of sites that I use to make my designs.
 
  • Medieval Weapon Art
    a catalog with excellent pictures and descriptions of medieval clothing, armory, weapons, and jewelry

    an extensive list of gemstones and brief descriptions, ranging from the most pupular (i.e. diamonds, rubies and sapphires) to lesser known stones (i.e. kyanite and sardonyx)

  • Wedding Thoughts
    glossaries available at this site that defines various headpieces and veils; necklines, sleeves, silhouettes, back and waist/bodices; trains, bustles, skirts and hemlines.

  • Silk Road Textile Merchants
    a great resource for descriptions and limitations of silks (charmeuse, chiffon, dupioni, four-fly, gauze, noil, organza, other silks, velvet), cottons (batik & ikat, batiste, organic cotton, other cottons, pique), linen (handkerchief, solid colors), tencel (tencel blends), and other fabrics (bemberg lining) as well as some samples of buttons (bone, jet, pewter, wood, ribbons)
