Absolutely love my dress. The designer was very informative on each detail going into my dress and made sure my needs where met down to the last detail. Once the order was given it did not take long at all for me to get it. I would highly recommend lily whitepad.
A hunter/gatherer who wonders, "What if?" and puts things together
I've done so many different things over the years, each satisfying an urge to create. I earned a degree in television/radio/film from Syracuse University, owned a restaurant, wrote advertising copy, taught in an after-school program for gifted and talented children, published an NFL newsletter, designed perennial gardens, hybridized daylilies, and now am retired from my job as an editor and graphic designer for a nonprofit organization.
Then the bug to make my own thing hit me again. I've always loved different textiles: the tweed of a man's suit, the patina of taffeta ribbon, the landscape of brocade, the hand of soft wool. And I loved hunting for good, unique, non-commercial-fabric-store vintage fabrics. Plus, I'm an environmentalist who hates to waste. A few light bulbs clicked on, and Lily Whitepad was born. (Lily Whitepad is one of those things a family member makes up on a long drive to Washington, DC, when you're a silly teen. It stuck.)
Around the web
Owner, Maker, Designer, Doing It All, From Soup To Nuts, With The Help Of Her Husband, AKA, The Shipping Guy
I've always had the desire to create something of my own, from the time I made my own Halloween witch's broom out of a brown paper grocery bag at age 7 to my tea length wedding dress many years later.
