Back to Dasia
Now that the Taylor baby is here, and now that I've gotten started with (and sold a few) Lammily designs, I can get back to my favorite muse, Dasia. I started designing a new fall wardrobe for her last week. I'm hoping to get some new items in the store by the end of next week.
Dasia is now working at her husband's school as a guidance counselor. Of course, that means a new wardrobe. As my mom used to say, "Any excuse is better than none."
I finished this two-piece belted suede pantsuit with a cape style collar (what a mouthful!), yesterday. This was a fun challenge because I was creating on the fly.
The collar can set up for a totally different look.
A back view. I told her this outfit is probably a little too involved to wear to school. She agreed.
This is the outfit she wore earlier this week. Nice and sensible. Black and white pinstriped, wide legged pants with a black cardigan and a white button down.
The perfect guidance counselor look.
This dress was a custom request from one of my customers. It was made a few weeks ago.
After the last church service story, Dasia brought her grandchildren to her house and cooked them dinner. This gave Carmelia and husband, Emmitt, a chance to have a quiet dinner together.
Dasia is checking the ham in the oven.
These are pictures of another customer requested order for food. This is the customer's ham, which is a little fattier and much bigger than the one Dasia has in the oven.
Here is a picture of four of the items ordered. There was one more dish, for a total of five items, but I forgot to take a picture of it.
We will be checking in on the Taylor family soon. Mom and baby have made it home from the hospital.
