Dress, OTK, Shoes, phone pouchette: BTSSB
Hat: designed by me, made by a millinery artist
Jewelry & accessories: handmade by myself
After years of dreaming, months of planning, weeks of preparation, and a few last nights late at the jewellery table...I finally got to wear my Scarlet Primavera Waltz for the Tekko 2018 tea party with Baby! Though I worked hard on all my accessories, I was still shocked to actually win! Everyone was so nice and lovely.
It was a special day for me to wear my dress. It was a gift from my long-distance girfriend of nearly five years, who I not been able to see in four years, and the day I wore it marked one week until I go up to her hometown to help her move out of her state and into my city. I wish she was there, but she was packing up to get ready. Still I thought of her and how this beautiful dress is so lovely, though her love is even more beautiful. It has taken so long but our romance has blossomed like the flowers on Scarlet. Hopefully she will be there the next opportunity I have to wear this dress at such an event.
Sorry for being a sap, but I just can’t help but share the story behind this dress!
She (the dress) was tailored by my talent seamstress, Marie, who has been in the bridal industry for decades and felt such an opportunity to go back to her origins with this gown. She has worked on many of my dresses, but I never saw her glow as she did when she worked on this one. Scarlet had her shoulders dropped so she would sit lower on my body, shoulder room added, bridal corset lacing so she wouldn’t be baggy in some places or too tight in other, and now she has pockets!
