Runaway Bride!

Hi Dolls

I’m feeling so lazy today……… after the long weekend I just need to sleep it off…….lol
We had a crazy weekend watching soccer believe it or not I’m not a sports person, but yes I did watch some local soccer supporting youth day!
It was so much fun the vibe was nice and we spend our Saturday at the annual Steven Pienaar Soccer Tournament  with the kids……
Monday ( Youth Day )  we planned to spend the day at the grounds watching the final soccer match , but it was so cold that we ended up with popcorn & watching movies ( I even forgot about work). This was a well spend weekend with my boyfriend and baby’s .

The project!
This is a wedding dress I made last year. I call it the runaway bride……….lol ……..long story but I will make it short! The client of the dress never came to collect the dress so now I’m hiring the dress out. Any way the dress was made with feathers in the front  and tulle at the back , I made the bust with tulle and made flowers on the bust for details I will be posting a tutorial on handmade flowers tomorrow!

Hope you enjoyed the post feel free to comment .
See you next time

Toodel do!

Black tulle high low banquet dress

Hi Dolls

Today is going to be a long day ……..Monday !!! I have a lot of things to do, my schedule is a bit hectic.
I have a ton of material to get for the orders that just came in over the weekend mostly banquet dresses and a few weddings…… It’s just so funny that I’m going to buy all this material and my sewing machine just died on me L This is just so sad my baby died after 9 years and hundreds of garments she produced for me …..and now I have to trade her in for some new kid on the block…… L Well I won’t give up on her she is the best thing that ever happened to me!

The Project
This is a Banquet / Prom dress that I made two months ago. My client wanted the dress on the picture but with lace sleeves, so I made the dress with taffeta, tulle and lace. The dress turned out great and she loved it.

My feelings / Lady in red

Hi Dolls

I just had to sort out a few personal issues that really got me thinking a lot about TRUST…………..It’s a big word yes!!!!!
 I personally would never hurt a fly, I would never steal from others, and I would not even make empty promises! I tend to have a big problem when it comes to trust, I trust everyone I meet. But I do however feel that my trust has been stripped away from  me and I will be judging everyone I meet after one person that  I truly trusted to do his work messed everything up and stole from me . I’m so staggered,  and will never trust a another mechanic ever again…….just saying  ( It’s something I just had to get out………
Anyways getting back to the project this is a dress I made in the beginning of this year it was for a banquet/ prom dress. My client is one of Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy For Girls matriculate banquet /prom. I made the dress with a satin silk and chiffon with a slit at the bottom and on the bust I used a gold material for the detail and I made sleeves with a red lace material.

It was a fun project and I really enjoyed making the dress.

Hope you enjoyed my post

Dinka's Banquet/ Prom Dress

Hi Dolls

Yes I know this dress is a bit revealing ……… well my client have a body that compliments this dress. This is also some of my old projects of last year that I just have to share. I made this dress with a satin, it has a slit in front and at the back it’s a mini with tulle at the bottom. The dress is different and it was a mixture of different dress designs. This was a banquet/ prom dress……….. I know what you thinking was she allowed to go to the prom ………….yes!!! Some schools do have rules as to the prom dance requirements and some just don’t have any …… But ether way I still think she looked great (*^,)
