Ultimate Dress Designer

A lot of people asked me who my favorite dress designer is. It's tough because I adore so many designers, Oscar de La Renta, Valentino, Marchesa, Vera Wang, Prada, Chanel, and tons more. Each have unique point of views and designs. But if I have to choose one, it would be Elie Saab.

Why Elie Saab? Well, have you seen his collections? Especially his couture collections. OMG! Everytime I see his garments, my heart beats faster, it's like a treat for my eyes. I would LOVE to be able to wear anything Elie Saab. His dresses are elegant, beautiful and always stunning.

I'm going to renew my wedding vow a couple of years from now (God willing). I never had a chance to wear a western style wedding dress, mine was a traditional Indonesian one, so this time I'd like to wear the western one. And I am having a hard time choosing what dress I'm going to make and wear. I would love to wear Elie Saab's, but they probably cost as much as my house, lol. So, I will have to settle by trying to recreate one of Elie Saab's dresses, but all of them are GORGEOUS, so which one? I do still have a year or so to think about it though.

I LOVE simple silhouettes but with a little bit of punch. Maybe something like this:
Or this:
Or this:
Or let's go over the top might as well, like this:
Now you see why it's such a hard choice?

Order Update, Client: Andre

Order update for client Andre. The fabrics are cut, and as you see here, panels are sewn. But top bodice, front skirt and back skirt is not connected yet, as you see here that they are just pinned together. The flare hasn't been sewn. Today I will be working on the lining and boning, and hopefully have some time left to sew the flare. :)

Order Update, Client: Natasha

Order update for Natasha. The muslin dress is done. Most of the stitches are temporary, I just wanna see how the dress fit first. You will see a lot of basting (temporary stitches) on the dress, like on the ribbon, the flounce, the pleats, etc. All of those will be removed. The pleats will be supported with stiches from the back, the seams on the flounce will be under the flounce, etc. I haven't hem the skirt, let me know how many inches you want me to take for the hem.

The dress is on its way to your place now, You should receive it on monday or tuesday the latest. :)

Monday, June 1, 2009

Order Update, Client: Natasha

Order update for Natasha. I'm finished making the pattern and now putting the dress together. I still need to connect the shoulder seams, baste the flounce (the seams on the flounce will be under the flounce and not outside like the pic above), the ribbon is temporary, the real ribbon will be slightly wider than the one on the pic, I need to put the zipper in, stitch the lining, and do some tucks here and there. Oh yeah, my dress form doesn't have hip, lol, so the hip on the dress looks saggy, but it should be fine when you try it on.

After I finish with it, I will send it to you to be fitted and let me know if the fit is O.K. The muslin dress is not hemmed yet, I think when you try it on just mark it with the pencil where you want the hem to end.

The finish dress will have a waist stay inside and a corselette (not corset), it's just a fancy term for boned foundation, to make sure everything stay the way it should be. And the flounce will be supported with skewed ruffle underneath, it will be invisible from outside and it is meant to give the flounce some support so that it won't be flimsy.

Order Update, Client: Natasha

Order update for Natasha. I'm using a brand new tee to make the dress form fits to your measurements. I have draped some muslin to make the front and back bodice. It's still rough, I need to even out the necklines, waist, etc. I have added seam allowence for the back pattern. Now I need to work on the front pattern. There will be a seam in the center front because the silk organza will be 45" wide. If it was 60" (if there's such a thing as 60" wide organza) I probably could make the whole bodice in one pattern.

After the bodice pattern is done, I will do the skirt. A colleague of mine who specialize in bridal and costuming adviced me to eliminate the corset because the style of the back bodice doesn't allow for a corset foundation. I will still use the bra you're sending me for fitting of the bodice.

Will post more pics in a few days. Your fabrics should arrive in a few days, I have called my supplier in NY last week and place an order of silk organza.

Chic Textured Kimono Dress, Available in Different Colors!

Color Choices:

This is one of the most time consuming garment I've ever made, but it is all well worth it. Most of the countless hours of work goes into sculpting the Sugar Snap fabric is used as applique. If you take a look at it closely, the Sugar Snap fabric is slightly raised to create textures. It is hand appliqued. The circles appliques also took a lot of time to create and appliqued.

This garment will be custom made from size 2T up to 8, black leg warmers/ tights are also included. Larger sizes and adult sizes of the garment is also available for additional fees, feel free to contact me if you need bigger sizes.

The deep red fabric I used in this garment is unfortunately sold out. However, you will still have 24 other colors to choose. You can mix matched the colors, do the bodice in pink and the skirt in khaki, or anything you want, just have fun :)

Please allow up to 30 days for the garment to be made. All my garments have superior quality of both materials and craftmanship.

The fabric is 100% Pima cotton broadcloth, it lends the firm durability and unrivaled softness of Pima Cotton. Originating in the southwestern of the United States, it is most closely comparable to Egyptian Cotton, with which it shares long-fibered tensile strength and an amazingly soft hand. Machine washable.
