I's been ages since I've blogged and I missed doing updating this space so much pretty much because I was occupied with work and, well, any spare time left was spent with loved ones. Things have progressed so much since my last post- from getting a new job at a bridal boutique to finally meeting that special person who means so much to me now and is now my fiance.
So I'll start off with sharing one major life event recently, well not really about the event, but about the outfit I made for my engagement recently in December 2015.
I used a light turquoise Duchess/Bridal Satin to make a multi-layered peplum top and I wore it with a turquoise skirt which I already have. It was a good coincidence because I was working and probably could only spare one day per week to work on this piece.
This piece probably took me less than 2-3 whole days from scratch including pattern drafting, and hand sewing of the embellishments such as the lace along the boatneck neckline, wrist beadings, pearl buttons and attaching the Swarovski crystals.
The multi-layered peplum bottom came about because I wanted to fully utilise the remaining fabrics and give it fullness and structure at the bottom.
My makeup was done by my quirky and talented MUA friend, @vainbrained, and I'm so glad I engaged her to doll me up that day.
Makes the day feel even more special to have someone around you can entrust to make you look good.
More updates on upcoming works to come, In Syaa Allah.
