I have been busy redesigning a back to a gown, bought to me by a lovely bride, who wanted a little bit more. I find it rather interesting altering gowns, as you can find out how different designers make. Some well and some not! With Couture you can always learn more, and so its been an interesting exercise. Although what you think will be an easy job never is. Its far easier and cheaper in the long run to start from scratch!

One legend goes that the Romans threw a priest named Valentine in prison for his teachings. On February 14th, Valentine was beheaded not only because he was Christian, but also because he had supposedly cured the jailer's daughter of her blindness. The night before he was executed he wrote her a farewell letter, signing it "From Your Valentine" It is traditionally a day where lovers express their love for one another by presenting flowers, chocolates, and cards.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
