Hello! My name is Jessica Law. I design wedding gowns and bridal party attire. You can see my portfolio for those here : jessicamaybridal.wordpress.com
I have an extreme passion for formal wear. Ever since I was little, I wanted to design “dresses” like the beautiful green lady in New York (aka the Statue of Liberty). My Grandmother passed down a love of textiles and buttons, and I learned to sew my first dress when I was twelve. In high school, I sewed clothing for myself for formal dances, and dabbled in alterations. I learned so much about clothing construction by taking apart old vintage pieces and sewing them back together.
I went on to fashion design school, and spent literally days straight in the sewing labs (usually not my classmates favorite place). I have a great appreciation for patternmaking, and I have recently been interested in wardrobe planning. Besides my business, I focus on sewing the random what-not for myself, my friends, and the occasional canine in my spare time. (My husband has only endured one Halloween costume thus far.)
The purpose of this blog is mainly to post photos of my non-bridal creations and as another creative way to express myself. Feel free to ask me questions about my projects or whatever you heart yearns to know about textiles, general sewing or bridal fashion.
Thanks for stopping by!
6.4.08 Time for an update!:
So, yep, I’m a seamstress. Love it, love it, love it. There’s one thing I love almost as much as sewing: photography!!! I’ve been apprenticing for quite some time now, and I’ll be ready to launch my photo website soon. So stay posted, and please don’t send me comments on my blog that it’s too sewing related or there’s too many photos… that’s just who I am! Isn’t ADD fabulous?
Thanks for reading me!
