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 :)
