When I started refashioning 10 years ago, I made a promise to God that I’d always stick to designing modest clothes that are wearable with LDS garments. It’s much harder to refashion since it cuts down on sooooo many design options and it requires more fabric when every inch of fabric is precious in refashioning, thus requiring more creativity & innovation. And when I see stunning dresses like this, I realize an exact dress like this with sleeves wouldn’t achieve the same design of delicacy or femininity hence it wouldn’t be as beautiful. But it’s a promise I made to God and myself and I’m sticking to it. Even if I ever became a famous fashion designer and A-list celebrities beg me to design something contrary to my promise. Because I really played this scenario in my head of them asking, pleading but I calmly turn them down and make them something modest instead and they end up loving it and rocking it on the red carpet. Because a girl can dream, right?
