Wedding Dress Part V: Embroidering the Bodice

Wedding dress embroidery by thisblogisnotforyou.comThis is probably the making of part of the wedding dress I am most excited to share with you! That’s very likely because it was the most fun part to create. Assembling a garment is fun, but it is also pretty repetitive as it is a similar process with many garments (even a wedding dress is just a dress after all). So trying something I haven’t done before was exciting and helping me loads to keep my sewing mojo up during the process.

Refashion it! Golden Vintage Dress to Embellished Crop Top

Hallöchen, ihr Lieben!

Hope you’re having a great week so far! I’m starting to get a bit stressed by the wedding preparations, especially with things involving the dress. A blog post was long overdue, though, so I’m trying to squeeze this one in between all the fittings and muslins and whatnot.

This is a really quick refashion project I wanted to share with you. It’s a loose-fitting embellished crop top I made from a dress that the Mr’s grandma gave me a little while ago. (scroll further down for before pics!).

Embellished Cropped Coco-Sweater

Hope you all had awesome holidays! It’s a bit late but I wanted to share one of my holiday makes with you: A cropped embellished sweater! It’s super cosy and the perfect thing to wear with all my sleeveless fit-and-flared dresses.

I often find it very hard to find the perfect cardigan with the perfect length. If they’re too long and paired with a flared skirt or dress they make the whole outfit look awkward and bulky. Making a sweater was on my to-do list this winter and I found some really awesome sweater fabrics lately (some of which I had ordered by accident). For the pictures I paired the sweater with one of my Hepburn dresses.
