Dress Mock-Up Stage 2

We finished hemming up the bottom, and then got to the fun part, the pick-ups! Here's the skirt, in a variety of different angles...hope you enjoy as much as I do!

and my personal favorite...

One interesting thing is - Sak has not only seen me in my dress, he helped make it. A big breach of tradition? Sure, but I think it's totally worth it. When I walk down the aisle, it'll be in something we both made. Together. Like a baby, but not. Weird? Okay, I'll stop.

My family, though a little unsure of whether we could pull it off or not, has now pledged their full support and excitement after seeing we could at least finish the bottom!

My maternal grandmother (Paw Paw, as we call her in Chinese), has been my inspiration, as she made her own wedding dress back in the day!

Hopefully her talent runs in the family!

Do you have a bridal inspiration?


  1. It looks good! :D I like the bottom shot the best too.

  2. yay! thanks ^^

    i'm thinking it might need a slight hoop or something on the bottom though? or is it puffy enough as it is? Maybe I should sew in the trusty hula hoop! haha
