New York Times article featuring my dress

Life is full of surprises. Just as I had landed in beautiful Sardinia last September, content to have a wonderful break with my family, I received an etsy conversation from a lovely girl named Charlie, who lives in New York. She told me she was in love with a boy, and my dresses, and wondered if I could make her one for her wedding in June. So one thing led to another and at a distance from Sydney when I finally stopped gallivanting, I made her wedding dress.... that just got featured in the New York Times last week, in a wonderful article about some unusual wedding dresses, which you can read about here:

It was an amazing surprise when Frankie contacted me last week to say we were in the New York Times, I felt like I was dreaming. It's a funny old life, this one.... I just love the elfish look of these two young loves. A pleasure to be a part of it. Here is the lovely review Frankie gave me on my creation:

I am so lucky to have found Gina Mastio, the most talented artist working on Etsy! As soon as I discovered her work, I immediately knew I wanted to her to provide my wedding dress -- and I wasn't even engaged yet. :) Once I got engaged, I never even considered getting my dress anywhere else: I HAD to have a GIna Mastio dress. It was an absolute dream come true when she agreed to make a custom one for me. I'm in New York, and I was worried about working with a designer in Australia, but Gina was always responsive, informative, and kind in our correspondence. She asked good questions and made helpful suggestions about the design and sizing. When the dress arrived, it was wrapped in beautiful paper, with a lovely handwritten note. And the dress is PERFECT -- gorgeous, well made, even better than I hoped! Thank you, Gina!
