|It's so hot, mummy !!|
By the way temperatures that weekend reached up to (38°C = 100.4°F). It was sooo hot. So the frowns in the pictures are not real frowns :) but due to the sun.
Top bodice and peplum of my dress is self drafted. :) yes, I am planning to eventually move away from store bought patterns because they are so limiting in designs and size variations.
Peplum was drafted by using the idea of a simple circle skirt. Total length was just about 11" long, width was my waist size.
Don't have a picture for my back view but its pretty much similar to front view, peplum goes all the way around.
|Used 'pinks' i.e bows, shoe to compliment their purple dresses.|
Why the ribbon running down the centre front of the girls you say? Well i realised after cutting the top pattern that it was slightly bigger than i wanted, so i sewed about 1/4th inch seam allowance right sides together and ended up with a line down the centre which i covered with the ribbon. In fashion a mistake normally leads to another fashion invention. lol. it turned out OK i guess.
|Notice the purple trim detail on the peplum?|
|While we wait for the coach to pick us from the registry to the wedding reception venue...|
|Probably wanted a drink at that time.|
That's a picture of myself and one of the girls. We mostly survived on drinks because of the heat.
The wedding itself was beautiful and fully romantic if I must say. The bride and groom were both adorable.
Until next time, have a wonderful day, week, month and please leave a message so I will know you were here.
