My civil ceremony dress - the making of

My civil ceremony dress is ready :) and I'm very happy with the outcome.
I'm gonna be a 50s queen :)
I think I've told you before that I would have loved to be born in that era.
One thing is for sure: my dress is unique because is my idea combined from a few other images :)
We'll see if there will be any copycats afterwards :)
Google images helped me a lot :) but I'm sorry that I didn't save the source of the images 
that got me inspired.
As you can see I went for the green :) combined with nude.

Enjoy the photos:

This is the dress, the bag and the shoes I'll be wearing:
And the gloves :) - they're a must
Gloves and bag are vintage :)


The actual shade of green is in the picture below:


While it was still a work in progress:



This is the first picture I came across when I searched Google images for inspiration
and I just loved these lovely ladies.
What I kept from this one is the puffiness :) of the skirt and the belt made out of material.
But I made my belt having a bow, cause I love them bows :)


From this one I kept the collar and something from the sleeves - check out this look here


This one helped me because of the buttons:
mine are smaller and displayed closer to the collar 


As for the skirt I took something from a skirt I already have and you've already seen here :)
this is how I came up with the waist line of the skirt



If you want to see me wearing it, you have to keep following my blog :)
I can assure you that you won't be disappointed :)

Long live the green!

      stiu sa croiesc fuste simple :) dar rochia asta esta e facuta de o croitoreasa cu experienta :) - nu am avut curajul sa mi-o fac singura - i-am explicat ei ideea si ea a pus-o in practica
