This dress was started Dec 08 and many times I didn't want to finch it but truly competed it in 2011. The ending fabric count of this dress is about 24yards (this included the self made pettie coat.)
The dress had a heart neckline so to fit my body shape. I chose to alter the design of the dress to try and flatter my own frame. I also chose to make the quality of the dress to rival that of most modern wedding dresses.
The skirt had three layers, the base is stretch satain, middle is a self dyed chiffon and the top is an organdy. The sleeves are just basic sleeve pattern, place upside down and then four layers of gather chiffon ruffles.
All the jewlery I customed made. I was lucky by waiting that pink pearls came back into jewlery fashion and was able to pick up many in different sizes from my local craft stores, Roberts and Michelles. They all have magnic ends making it easyer to take off and on and not to catch on hair or my dress.
The wig is a pink base wig with two wavy/curly clips. I had to shorten the clips and used the cut hair to make the odango clips. The wig cames in 5 peices.
I did my first reisn cast with Small Lady's for head gem.
