i’ve been browsing through HEAPS of photos and designs of wedding/bridesmaid dresses for begum’s wedding (i know, blame the free time i have..haha) but nothing really captures me..
until i scored a series of tv dates with mr boyfriend for lord of the rings that the image of eowyn gave me quite an idea of how the bridesmaid dress could be made..
so this is what she wore in that movie..
and here’s a closer look..
i’ll be using a plain, pinkish purple chiffon lace with heavy floral bordering (i wonder how i could get rid of the border and make embellishments on the waistline and skirt possible)..bearing in mind too i’d be using a satin lining for the nature of a chiffon is too sheer to be made into something like the above..
ah well, 🙂 borrowing eowyn’s determination and courage *i’m not sure it’s even necessary in sewing a dress!* hahaha..i’ll do whatever i can to realise this dress..wish me luck! oh, and i think too, i’ll work on something for the neckline..may be something like this..?
i sketched the design of this dress, really..but let’s just say an 8 year old can sketch better so please just imagine how this neckline is cropped and fixed into the above dress..gee~ but really that design works perfectly well with anyone with a long torso..and noooo, i don’t really have that long torso..so i’m crossing my fingers for it NOT be a fashion disaster..
p/s dear boyfriend who’s been sleeping with his uncomfortable tummy, get well soon, alright 🙂 *sgt manja ok baru sehari exercise dah dtg semua sakit* :p haha..but yea, i mean it..behave to him mr tummy 🙂
p/s/s dear another friend..i’m happy hearing about your wedding preparations..it’ll consume a lot of your energy, and money..of course..but everyone undergoes it..you can do it..and i do pray for everything to be running smoothly 🙂 all the best buddy..
