I dream of Jeannie ~ Genie Costume

A costume from Arabian Nights lore, this genie costume was inspired by the retro TV show "I dream of Jeannie."  In the show Jeannie traditionally wears pink, but I had vintage material in blue. A blue genie costume it is.  The costume is trimmed in dangling gold medallions and a large vintage jewel. 

How is is made?  Vintage blue curtains & a jewel from a vintage belt.  The lining and gold trim is new, as is the thread of course. 

Would love to hear your thoughts!  The pantaloons & headdress are for sale in my store on Etsy. 


Wedding Day Dreams



Here are a few pictures from our wedding as promised.  I bought my dress, but added the buttons.  I did make my veil. (And the bouquet)

Ash Tree Meadow Designs Has a New Look

Since it's been almost a year since I have updated, I thought it appropriate to intoduce you to our new look.
The past year has been very eventful, my best friend asked me to marry him and I was very happy to accept his proposal. What I thought would be a brief break turned into a year, as we planned the wedding and relocated.  Will be posting some pictures soon, I didn't make my dress, but I did make my veil.

Glad to be back :)
