Anne was also the Bridal alterations expert at Kleinfeld, Beverly Hills then Saks Bridal, until she went on her own, recruited her daughter, Olivia and created ” A Stitch in Time Bridal Services”.

Olivia followed in Anne’s footsteps, has always worked within the Fashion world and with Anne in alterations and more importantly in the development of custom bridal accessories working with clients to create the perfect pieces from hair jewelry, specialty beadings, veils, belts and boleros as well as custom build ups.

bleach shirt materials @weddingchicks

Materials:

Freezer Paper, Scissors, Tank Tops, Downloadable Templates, Bleach Pen, Exacto Knife, Iron, 1ft x 1ft Piece of Cardboard & Plastic Bag.

Step 1:

Carefully measure and cut freezer paper into 8.5 x 11 sheets to print your templates onto. Feed one sheet at a time into your printer so that the image is printed on the non-wax side of the paper. You can get these free downloadable templates by clicking here or on the image below.

Step 2:

Print out a template for each shirt you plan to bleach. You will not be able to reuse them, so if you have multiple bridesmaids be sure you have multiple bridesmaid templates printed.

Step 3:

With an Exacto knife carefully cut around each letter. We suggest starting with the insides of each letter as it will make the cutting process much easier. You will need the interior shapes of the letters so be sure to hang onto those for the next step.

Step 4:

Place your newly cut out template onto your shirt where you would like it to be bleached. Carefully add in the interior shapes of the letters. Gently iron template to shirt, This shouldn’t take more then 20 or 30 seconds.

Step 5:

Insert plastic back covered piece of cardboard into the shirt to prevent the bleach from staining the back of the shirt.

Step 6:

Lightly apply bleach pen gel to the shirt. We recommend doing your best to stay within the lines of the template. This will cause less bleeding and make the letters more crisp.

carefully add bleach to the shirt @weddingchicks

Step 7:

Let bleach for about an hour to an hour and a half depending on the color of the shirt. A good rule of thumb is the darker the color the longer it will take to bleach properly.

Step 8:

Once the bleach time is up carefully peel off the template and discard. Then with your Exacto knife gently remove the interior shapes of the letters.

Soft Southern Dream Inspiration

Kristen Booth Photography @weddingchicks

We love the subdued colors and floating tulle that fill this soft southern dream wedding inspiration, created by Kristen Booth Photography and Lukas & Suzy VanDyke! This whole shoot put us in a mood to walk bare foot on a grassy lawn while sipping Mint Juleps. Ahh, summer can’t come soon enough!

This fabulous day had such beautiful vintage details, and we want to share every last one of them with you! So don’t forget to visit the full gallery here, there is plenty more to see!

Sweet Dreams Of The South

From Kristen Booth Photography: Our vision behind this shoot was to bring an old-world fairytale to the South. We worked the different elements to come together and create a lovely Southern wedding, with a storybook twist. The McGee House gave us the Southern charm we were looking for.

Chic Southern Belle Style

We chose soft, classic hairstyles and makeup to give a sweet Southern belle appearance. The shoot was highly influenced by vintage, with the bride and bridesmaids all wearing original 1950′s gowns.

Thrift Store & Antique Shop Details

We sought to marry the vintage and rustic element by bringing in many thrift store and antique finds, like the candle holders and plates. We completed the look with a palette of lots of soft pastels and touches of gold.
