make a dress out of ties
NECK TIES aren’t for dad’s anymore

I used to collect silk ties. I was always raiding my dad’s closet for old pants and silk ties, i wore the pant’s but the ties he was tired of I held on to, because i knew there was a craft project right around the corner that needed those ties. Even in college I found myself picking up the best ties at the thrift stores and even T.J maxx because I had it in my head that i was going to make a skirt out of them. I started that project with all the enthusiasm in the world, but I gave up and decided that if i really wanted that skirt, eventually I would try again ( and buy a sewing machine because sewing by hand takes forever). 

Well I now have a sewing machine, but when I want that tie skirt, or dress or ball-gown, I’m going to Glamarita instead of making it myself. I mean seriously, check out Ronnie’s amazing seamstress skills. If I had a prom to attend this spring, or any special occasion I would definitely be getting one of her creations without thinking twice. They are so imaginative and her color choices and designs are simply beautiful. Breathtaking conversation starters, you would surly turn some heads in one of these made to order ball-gowns.
