I just finished making another gown! PIC HEAVY!

Hi girls! Long time no see :) I was active awhile back (I got married in May 2011 - wow can't believe it's been that long!). Anyways, after making my wedding gown I started sewing some more for fun and just finished a gown for my little sister who competed in the Miss Texas Teen USA pageant this weekend. The gown looks kind of wedding-ish so just wanted to show y'all for inspiration :)  It was inspired by the Christian Siriano Wonderstruck gown (I fell in LOVE with that thing!). She placed in the top five out of 101 contestants - I was so proud!! It was made from silk duchess satin for the bodice, and silk organza and nylon tulle for the bottom. I hand dyed the tulle to match the bodice and achieve a slight ombre effect. Ps, I'm totally NOT trying to advertise to anyone and I don't take order for gowns off the internet. Just wanted to make it clear this is not in any way an advertisement or an offer to sell to anyone at all (don't want to violate the PW rules), just providing some inspiration and showing off my sister and a little hobby I've taken up :)

Forgot to mention, I did the beadwork around the bodice with solid swarovski crystal in AB Crystal, Clear Crystal, and Golden Shadow. I also added some Swarovski ivory pearls mixed in with the crystals :) Ps, if any of you ever need to buy crystals for your gowns or decor I always order them from www.dreamtimecreations.com (they are the cheapest and have the best selection I think).

That is AMAZING! I think it is good to show people what we can do. I am a D.I.Y. Bride on EVERY detail and if I can teach or LEARN how to that is great. It takes time and effort to learn what you did.


Now if only we could take a class from you :-)
