Short Wedding Dresses Australia all the flowers gets to choose
Dolin bliss So much has been happening and as usual, i haven blogged about it.Will need to catch up on everything.For now, here is one of my big projects that will be finished soon.Dress(Which is all hand basted together, at this point)Is on the left, it will have an overlay of silk crinkle chiffon.The left are the options of what the overlay will look like and she gets to choose. Miss Francis is coming over for her finalDressfitting, before her big day on September 26th!Am so very excited.Is a dream to work with and i can wait to see her on her big day, dressed in her signature color.Courtesy of the talented olivia, who also designed our wedding invites. I am also making a cocktail hat for her, that will incorporate her dress fabric and peacock feathers.Pretty! My other really big project is a bit of a secret for now.I can tell you that i am working with jennifer paganelli, the fabulous designer behind sis boom.To come on this. Have a great weekend. Ok, so you guys have seen some wedding pictures, but i owe you some pictures of the wedding reception.We wanted a very small wedding and dinner after the ceremony, we only ended up having about 25 people at the wedding and dinner.We also wanted to celebrate our wedding with all of our good friends and family, so the next evening we had 70 people over to our house for the reception.Strung multicolored paper lanterns entirely around see results about Party Dresses the backyard. (My new sisterinlaw)Made the tiki bar in the back right of the photo, she also volunteered to be bartender(Which is no easy task with our friends). Here is a closeup of the table center pieces.Wanted a very casual, yet festive look.Stepsisters made the dahlia flowerpots for us.Also had polaroid cameras on most of the tables, so olivia made some signs so people would use them. Hello, i am just now coming back to the real world after our wonderful wedding and mini honeymoon!You want to see some pictures of the wedding?The pictures shown on this post today were taken by my close friend/hairdresser/photographer eric hooten.They are: Getting ready with olivia helping me.Amazing olivia was my best lady(I hate the way matron of honor sounds), she designed my invites and generally just helped me out all around with everything.Love her! This is a fun photo, right before we head over to the school house. Lr:Front row the bride, stepsister lisa, stepsister jennifer(Both of these lovely ladies did Short Wedding Dresses Australia all the flowers).Row jon, karen, olivia and skip. Walking into the school house together to get married.Wanted to walk down the aisle together. I think that is enough with the photos!Geez, there were so many fun and great ones.It was such a fun and perfect day for us.The ceremony matthew sister and brotherinlaw hosted a dinner for us and the wedding guests(25 of us total)At there house.Was so wonderful and mellow, we all had some good food.We went to original joe to sign our marriage certificate.Next day was our reception at our house, for about 70 people, i will have to post some pictures of that on another post.I have to say it was hard work doing most of this wedding ourselves.It was totally worth it, because the wedding was entirely ours and what we wanted.Loved my wedding dress and hat and even after putting in over 100 hours making them by hand, i wasn one bit sick of it and i got to wear it two days in a row. That lovely picture was taken at the end of my bachelorette party, when my sweetie was picking up his drunk and sweaty(From lots of dancing)Soontobe bride.By the way, my girlfriends made my bachelorette party the most fantastic day and night!A few of us started off by getting some spa treatments at bliss.Afterwards we relaxed at andy house and got ready for the evening.They took me to a wonderful dinner at orson delicious, i highly recommend this place)And then dancing at elbo room for! Since i have been really bad at posting to my blog lately and it won get any better in the next month, i wanted to let you know to check back with me at the beginning of august.I promise to post pictures of the finished wedding dress and the wedding festivities, but right now i just need to concentrate on our house and all the wedding details.Please come back and see me in august. A few weeks ago i went to lacis in berkeley to find some supplies to make the cocktail hat for my wedding.You haven been there, lacis is an amazing resource for all types of textile arts both new and old.Even have a small museum there that shows all sorts of amazing lace and textile exhibits(I saw a beautiful irish crochet exhibit there, a couple of years back).Book selection alone could keep me occupied for weeks!Only drawback is that it is expensive and i could spend thousands of dollars there, but it is so worth the trip to visit, just for some amazing needlework eye candy.Here is what i picked up while i was there: All sorts of goodies(From left to right).A turquoise vintage beaded design, turquoise silk ribbon, red veil netting, black elastic, red flowers, red silk ribbon and vintage turquoise sequins.Last week i decided that i need to get out of the house more and make some friends here is san jose, so i did two things.I went to my local yarn store commuknitty and participated in there social knitting(Every sunday from 24pm). Dscn0021, originally uploaded Bridesmaid Dresses Online Australia by lulubliss. I swear i am not lying that is basically just the amount of time i worked on my dress during the week of my couture sewing class.I ended up working so hard that week, that i was sick for a few days after the class.Still have about 40 more hours of work to put into the dress before it is done.Wonder couture garments cost so freaking much! I can begin to tell you how wonderful the class was!Susan khajle was our instructor and she is such a wealth of knowledge in couture sewing.I wish the class continued.Another great thing about the class was that you learned different techniques from the other students projects too.There were a total of 13 students and everyone was doing a different type of garment.I was on a high all week and it has been hard going back to life as usual.Check out my updated"Making of my wedding dress"Flickr set for more images. The outside body of the dress is going to be the turquoise silk fabric and the lining is the red silk.I ordered both of them from c j textiles.The turquoise is the cj 1500 double face satin in peacock, and it is amazing!It has a stiffer hand and decadent feel, it will be perfect for the 1950 style dress i want.The red lining is the cj 100 crepe de chine in color 267.It is real soft and more drapey.I am so excited about making my dress!I am going to draft the pattern and make the first muslin in april, in time for my couture sewing class i am taking in may. I have vowed not to fall into that whole wedding industry crapola!I did have a weak moment and bought a, what a waste of $6!For me, there was nothing inspiring or original in it and most of the articles are available online, for free.The ads in the magazines alone, are enough to make me sick.So, no more bridal magazines allowed! Since i am going to make my own dress, i tried looking at the overall silhouettes of the dresses in the msw magazine, to get some sort of idea/inspiration of what i want.Boy, was that a mistake!What is it with all the frothy, strapless, expensive and horribly ugly dresses?I know everyone has different tastes, but all the dresses look so similar, are so expensive, and look very cheap.I know i have a different take on this than most people, but being a pattern maker with almost 15 years experience in the garment industry has made me hyper critical of fit and construction.Don get me wrong, there are beautiful, more traditional wedding dresses out there.Most of the ones i have seen are custom made by small independent designers.
