Meet Carmen and Tracy

You've met Carmen before.  She's a long-time customer of mine.  When I wrote my post, "Why Can't I Find a 50s Dress to Fit Me?", Carmen went out and bought the Vogue pattern 1172 that I suggested.

Carmen is very lucky to have Tracy Popken of Salvage House Boutique in her personal fashion arsenal.  Tracy is a fashion designer and seamstress in Dallas, TX who specializes in restoring, remaking, and replicating vintage clothing.  She used that Vogue pattern to custom make the dress Carmen is wearing in the first photo.  Tracy did a phenomenal job on this dress and doesn't Carmen look stunning?  A talented seamstress is worth her weight in gold if she can make you look this good!
