I Design My Gowns

Have you tried designing your own dress? I did and it was really fun. I was the one who designed my own wedding gown. It was a simple sleeveless gown with pearl details at the neckline and hand-worked rosettes at the back and skirt edge.

Last Ocotber I was asked to be a wedding sponsor. I browsed the net for a style that will hide my bulges perfectly but I didn’t see one that suits my taste so again I designed my dress. It’s an A-line base long dress with spaghetti straps and overlapped draped skirt.

I asked “Manong James”, my dressmaker, to just follow every detail of my sketch and he did just great but I changed my mind the last minute…instead of the V-shaped organza cloak, I just used a red chiffon cloth as shawl.

The draped skirt hid my tummy bulges and the picot edge details at the overlap creates a graceful vertical line. It perfectly matched my gold slip on.
