Diary of a Wedding Dress: A Tiny First Peek

The Journey Begins...

I have been having ever so much fun today pulling out my wedding dress (with Disney's Cinderella movie playing in the background) and beginning work on adding the little bits of 'me' to it. The first thing I'm doing, which may be the only thing you get to see until after the wedding, is adding some sparkle to some motif decorations I bought. Everything fits perfectly on my new wood tray, a wedding present from my parents. They made me a set of three, dad built them and mom did the painting. I love it so much!

But back to the fiancée was with me when I bought these tiny glass beads and a bag of sequins. "You're putting sequins on your dress!?" He asked me. I don't think he trusts me. heehee I told him to trust's going to be perfect. :) And I know he does, he just likes to tease.

Here is a close up of what the trim looks like before I added my touches.
Then I cut the flowers apart, this one gets just one silver sequin behind two glass beads. The sequin, you see, works as a mirror to give the glass beads a more stunning reflection. :)

This poor piece got snipped in the middle. I'm much more careful when cutting these apart now.
I'm going to try to use each little piece...they are all so pretty. :)
This is just one of the little touches I am adding to my dress. But you'll just have to wait, I'm afraid, to see just where and how they go.
One more thing I will tell you about my dress is that the designer is Alfred Angelo, the designer of the Disney Fairy Tale Weddings line I posted about awhile back. :) I knew I liked that guy. How can you not, with a name like Alfred? ;)
I hope you have a happy weekend!

  1. I love sequins! Can't wait to see your dress!!!

  2. It's going to be beautiful! And I love all the stuff on the pretty tray that your dad made! :)


  3. "...and we'll make a lovely dress for Cinderelleeeeee..." Just stumbled across your blog and love it. Glad I'm not the only film costume/sewing fanatic out there. Keep on blogging. :)



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
