White daisies embroidered on organdy with scalloped hem, over yellow cotton- here is Jennifer who chose the fabric & helped with the design of her custom belle gown.
She wanted a yellow dress at a time when there were few- now each year they grow like wild flowers and for 2019, there are 2 new yellows in the collection. But “daisies on yellow” has never missed a festival since Jennifer’s debut💛

This dress was first worn by Kelsey - she has the most beautiful haircolor for this shade of pink.
The dress was designed by the readers of our newspaper! Five fabrics to choose from & 3 bodice styles & 3 skirts styles! Then the readers voted online- very exciting! When the winning style was announced, I sewed the gown!
STAR NEWS BELLE.

General information

This is a description of the fitting process for Azalea Belles of Cape Fear Garden Club, Inc at Dressmaker Debbie Scheu's location. 1. Young ladies who have been accepted, call for an appointment to take place during the specifed dates. 2. Meeting with Ms Debbie and her assistants, gowns are displayed on three racks arranged by Petite, Average, and Tall. However, many can be changed in height as well as the size at bust and waist. 3. Since they look so different without hoops, there is also a poster with photos similar to those on facebook. 4. A spreadsheet will help you find any dress from this collection worn by a friend or older sister in a previous year. 5. After choosing 3 to 5 gowns, each girl is shown to a private fitting room. Her guest (mom, sister) is welcome to join in the fun! 6. As the girls try on gowns, ladies from the Garden Club and Ms Debbie assist. White hoops, separate from the gowns, are custom fitted to the height of the girl and fullness of the skirts, achieving the authentic look reminecent of the antebellum period. Ruffled bloomers are just outside each room and come in several classic pastel colors. 7. Once the dress is chosen, there is a pin fitting if changes are needed. Any additional fee for alterations is paid the same day as the appointment. 8. Returning to the front Parlor, everyone has fun choosing gloves, hair bows or flower barrettes; bonnets can be trimmed to match a dress (at no extra cost) ; shawls can be selected for warmth or fashion, many are the matching fabrics to the dresses; parasols, dainty and authentic to the time period in size, are covered in complimentary fabrics or laces. 9. A rental form is filled out listing all the items selected along with any details; fees are paid in cash or check. 10. A second fitting is scheduled for any dresses being altered and the girls usually go home with a bag full of accessories. If the dress is a perfect fit, then gown and all the trimmings are placed in a garment bag and ready to go out the door with exciting times in the weeks to come.

Lots of locals have been making masks to keep our community safe against the spread of COVID-19. Darius Melton spoke to a few in this week's cover story, including Debbie Scheu Costumes, Jen Richmond Iapalucci, Dr. Damien Brezinksi at Island Cardiology and Lynne Adams. http://www.encorepub.com/homemade-masks-covid19/

Debbie Scheu Costumes - thank you for these wonderful costumes!!!!
Love the "Singin in the Rain" costumes (Debbie Scheu Costumes) for the dueling cavalier scenes and rehearsing with Cathy Sanborn Street at St. Mark Catholic School Wilmington, NC
Saw you on WECT!
Dear Mrs Scheu, Hope you are well. A couple of years ago I was in touch with you regarding my son Michael, and a school production of Gone With the Wind. Unfortunately at that time my computer was badly hacked, ruining our plans and losing us a good deal of money. Anyway, Michael has moved up through the school and is looking ahead to drama college. We have a proposal for an interesting project, but it would be good to know if you remember us before going into detail. Please drop me a line if you can, on my new email [email protected]. Many thanks, Suzannah and Michael
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this such a cherished time. You are the best designer in Azalea Bell Fashions!
