San Diego Comic Con 2014 - THE DRESS

Since the first year of Comic Con I have been amazed by the creations con-goers have made out of the WB swag bags.  So for this my sixth year, I was determined to have one!  Enter my good friend Louise!

I met Louise through a mutual friend and we clicked right away talking all things SDCC and of course blogging!  Louise worked for many years as a costume designer for a major Halloween costume company.  Now she is working completely on creating her own pieces and her blog Design Stitch Go.

On our first meeting, we tossed around ideas and she made me an adorable sketch!
So for our second meeting, Louise took my measurements.  I mean ALL my measurements.  I've never had that many done before, she was VERY thorough.  She had a mock up of the dress and altered it to what the final product would be.
Our last meeting I had my full dress minus the zipper and it fit like a glove!  It was perfect!
And then there was the FINAL pick up on Sunday.  I was in total AWE!  The dress is more than I could have ever dreamed!  The details and stitching is perfect.  She added the cape which was a complete surprise and it had my lil robot guy on the back!  Of course there was also a hint of my non-SDCC love...A Silent Film!
If you EVER need ANYTHING made, Louise is your gal!  She was completely professional.  The quality is such that this dress will last for cons to come!  She goes above and beyond what was asked and I just cannot say enough amazing thinks about her and her work!
If you are a sewer yourself, Louise has some great tutorials on her blog.  She has also made some GORGEOUS Elsa and Ana Frozen dresses for her daughters {along with every other Disney princess} and WAY better than the Disney store :)

I will be wearing the dress ALL day Saturday, so come take a peek if you see me!! THANK YOU SO MUCH LOUISE YOU ARE THE BEST!!!! XO
