Done! Lilies of the valley Dress is completed

Photobucket
  I just finished the dress and I am so happy with it,  I could not wait to share it with you.
   It was finally just as I had been imagining in my dreams ....

Photobucket
    I was seriously doubting throughout the process if I put a peter pan collar or simply finished with bias tape cut from the same green fabric that has the armhole and hem.
Although I was just in time, I finally decided to collar ... Then it occurred to me to give a small detail of embroidery as well. I am very happy to have elongated a little time to sew and get these little details, it was worth, I think ....

Photobucket
   In total there are ten motives embroidery around the hem, of course, all are not exactly equal to each other .... are not made by a machine, but one by one, stitch by stitch ...They are also light years away from being perfect .... but I love every one of them, all are my babies ....


Photobucket
   The back of the dress, I think it is amazing .... if I may say so ...


Photobucket
   I will wear the dress tomorrow, I have to attend an event to be outdoors and even try to take pictures tomorrow, I fear it will end very wrinkled , so the idea now is to take all the details of the clothing and accessories.
Therefore, I looked through my closet all the things that could go well with the colors and the model of this dress and this is what I found.

 Photobucket
  I also took extra time to line all dress with cotton poplin, bearing in mind that the fabric is white ... it was quite likely to show parts of my anatomy that guests will be grateful not to see ...


PhotobucketThis is the sorry state of end of the pants ... It did a great service and now have a better life as part of a beautiful dress ....


Photobucket
         
               Please, have a nice weekend and enjoy the little things in life.... be happy.

  2. Wow, Rosy you have created a jewel! Your dress is gorgeous, it is so beautiful, I cannot wait to see you in it, I love that the flower motifs are not all the same, and not by machine, but by your hand. How do you feel now that you have completed a project which has been on your to do list for years? Relieved? Happy? Sad? Accomplished? Well done!

  3. Rosy, this is a fantastic and long lasting labor of love dress! So well made and I adore the embroidery like you said is like our children they are not perfect but they are perfect to us.
    The accessories are just great. I have not use my "abanicos" for a long time but you inspire me to start using them again and the small bag or "monedero" is absolutely beautiful.

  8. I absolutely love it! I often dream of dresses looking a certain way but rarely get to create them. This is so great that you did. Lily of the Valley is also my birth flower so holds a special place in my heart.
