Last quarter of 2015, I was invited to be part of my college friend’s wedding. This is the first time that I am not only making the bridal gown for the bride, but would also do my own gown as a bridesmaid and my college best friend’s dress who is the Maid of Honor.
The wedding's motif was red and I've been loving this daring color for quite sometimes now making the designing part more exciting. Just imagine, I’ll be designing my gown in my favorite color.
For myself, I created a lavish fishtail or mermaid cut gown that fits my sensual personality. The upper part is made of lace while I crafted the bottom with metallic tulle.
Fishtail dress is way more challenging than I though it took me several adjustments before I was able to get the fit so I find the experience as a very good opportunity for me to practice. Apart from that, I also tried to do a corset typed top for the first time, it didn't turn out to be exceptionally good but I think it wasn’t that bad for a first timer. :)
For the Made of Honor, instead of settling to a common all red entourage, we peek a Champagne gown for her. It may look skin-tone in the photo depending on the screen resolution but it has a very soft reddish shade in actual.
I am a big fan of chiffon and see-though so I am personally in love with how the skirt flow and shows some skin while keeping the conservative look. My friend made me giddier when she walks with it happily and feeling gorgeous.
It’s been quite a while now since I started to take this hobby slowly higher and I am very much humbled and honored by all the support I am getting from them. I am beyond thankful to the universe for the blessings of friendship.
