I think a bride should indulge and be true to her personal style by choosing a wedding dress that makes her feel absolute most like “her.” So I did! After walking down the aisle in the fitted silver gown (refer to my previous post), I took a load off by changing into this significantly lighter chiffon dress.
Simplicity is key and yet I wish to make a bold statement for my second and last look of the day.
Out of all the gown, without any second doubt, this is my absolute favorite!!! As you can tell from my smiley face, the dress is relax and comfortable to wear in, light, clean and yet eye catching.
On top of all above, this is a reconstructed dress, it is the icing on the cake.
Yes, i reconstruct this dress from one of my gown previously I wore for my pre-wedding photoshoot!
This dress has kept so much memory as it is the first wedding gown I put on for photo-shooting, and I wear it to end the chapter. Over and above, I toss my bouquet and had my first dance in it.
The rest of the night was filled with laughter, singing and dancing. We had so much fun that night!
The celebration of #happiyilemverafter has come to an end. After taking a break, I am ready to move on to new project! Hopefully by next year, it will be ready to share with you all.
This is one of my favorite dress I did for myself and I really enjoy doing it!!! It is a bareback embroidered cheongsam, also known as qipao; traditional Chinese costume.
Qipao is a straight, close-fitting dress with a high neck, short sleeves, and a slit skirt. I make it short so it is easier to walk in and pose with Cici (the husky below).
However, the prewedding shoot doesn’t show much the details of the dress… I still love it though, because Cici is in it! No one can resist a silly dog… Right?
I decided to reshoot the dress to showcase the details…
I used soft tulles for ruching on the bodice to create light and fluffy texture. A lot of hand-stitching going on but I guess it worth the effort!
The bow behind changed the silhouette of my body, boost up my flat butt.
Cut-in armhole goes just well with mandarin collar… I reuse some of the lace scraps from the previous project, add on sequin flowers and butterflies for a vintage look.
I love making beautiful things… The satisfaction is there when you put hours of hard work turn the ideas into fruition. Behind the scene:
