East meets West

CONGRATULATIONS!
To Priscilla & Raymond
for their wedding on 11 & 12 July 2009.
She is my very good friend since schooldays!
Church mass at Sacret Heart ..I miss attending this one... hahaha.. busy with my sewing machine... to finish up the night reception..
*sigh* finally completed... one down.. more to go!
This dress is very similar to the dress I made before this..
Although I've done this a few times.. but this time is more challenging..
(1)
I have to make 2 sets of dress for 5 girls = 10 dress
(2)
I have to get their measurements by email.. I have to trust their mom's measurement or typo error (only guide them by email)
(3)
I was only given their picture too, so that I can guess how exactly they look like physically.
(4)
I have 5 multi sizes to make - 14, 12, 10, 6 & 4 years old
No matter how hard it is.. I will strive hard to make it.. Like Bryan Adams said, "Everything I do.. I do it for YOU" (yes all of you out there too)

This is the back side ... the ribbon was a bit short, since the organza fabric is limited.. and I have no more time to go out to buy more.. This is the only length I got.. But, no fear.. I had bought for standby.. rolls of organza ribbons.. In case anything happen..

Haaah.. This is HARD! For me ... you should feel the softness of the fabric... veryyy soft...needs extra carefull ya... and hard to handle..heheh
(mind my lazyness, I didn't get it ironed before taking pics... sleepy oredi)



A speghetti strap dress with semi round flair skirt.. Looks easy...
but only God knows how hard it is for me ... needs practice..
I made the embelishment simple this time.. only play around with ribbons and bows... I didnt get the close up for the gold dress bow ribbon has a tiny butterfly on it

Look at the cute lil girls in the dresses I made... not the girl in black, (the Kadazandusun traditional costume). I plan to make one for my lil Maya with a Dusun Lotud costume(coming soon.. dunno when)

Arent they pretty.. Mix multi-racial ... Malaysian & France

This cute girl is Azizah 6.. my good ol-pal Syedatul's daughter.. sexy oo..
