Project20ne: The Dress

Here’s the promised post about my wedding dress, which I really missed making. I miss conceptualising the design, sourcing for fabric, and finally getting down to sewing it. For my dress, I wanted a short gown in lace and tulle with an illusion back. I also knew I want something re-wearable (though I doubt I will wear my wedding dress again). I also decided to wear blush, instead of the usual white.

As I had a solemization and a church wedding, I needed wanted 2 dresses. So I made a tulle skirt to wear over my knee-length dress. Voila! I also wore the skirt for my 1st entrance at the solemnization. The skirt was made with 5 layers of tulle in various colours to achieve the shade of blush I want, especially to match the satin of the underlay. I am so ecstatic that it is the exact shade of blush I want! So much for customized colour!

Now I am hoping for a fairytale theme for Teachers’ Day dinner in the future so that I can wear my tulle skirt as a fairy godmother!
