Red and Black Party Client Dresses

Monday, January 19th, 2015

Hooray for a good client challenge! I was asked to make a Christmas PARTY dress for my friend, Peg Raisglid (owner of Lovin’ Spoonfuls Cafe). Peg is an amazing woman who has a doctorate’s degree and owns the first-ever all vegan restaurant in Tucson, Arizona. When she asked me to make her a dress, I thought she was kidding at first. Then, she kept coming to me with more and more requirements and I realized that she was serious! Some of her requirements included: (1) the colors must be mostly reds and blacks with a little white or gray, (2) long-sleeves were a must, and (3) it must be a party-worthy dress for the Christmas Day party that she was hosting.

Struggling to find just the right materials, I gathered a bunch over about two months. I made three dresses over a few days in December, had one fitting with Peg, and then gave her three final dresses with just days to go until her party. Happily for my family and me, we were invited to her party (can you say “Best Food At a Party–Ever”?!?) and so we got to see her final pick!

Here is the winning party dress! It met all of Peg’s requirements AND it’s still very much my own Teagan’s Creations style! I’m thrilled with the outcome. Doesn’t she look great?

Here are the fronts and backs of the other two outfits I made for Peg. She decided to keep all three, which pleases me a lot! I am, of course, wearing a dress that I designed myself, too. :)
