Aurora's Song by JenniferWeiler Aurora's Song by JenniferWeiler


Yellow is one of my best colors which is a bit ironic if you knew me in my middle and high school days haha! It occurred to me as I was nearing the completion of this piece that it very much resembles the drawings of Mucha's girls. I guess that's where my clothing inspiration came from and it just never occurred to me LOL! The piece is pale yellow chiffon, glass champagne pearls, vintage ecru lace trim, two different beaded alencon trims, a large heavily sequined/beaded applique, two beaded appliques for the side bustles, soft beige tulle, beige mesh lace, and one vintage Van Raalte nightgown that I destroyed for the top part. XP

This piece is SOLD.

Thanks for viewing! ^~^ <3

This dress is absolutely wonderful! I'd love to wear it :heart: I love the layers, the thin fabric and the ruffles - so many details, without appearing overloaded. And it's backless - I LOVE backless dresses La la la la
(I just have to use the word "love" inflationary here)

You're quite welcome and yay! Thanks for allowing me to; I'll let you know when I get started on it. (:

I've always loved fashion but I didn't get the opportunity to start making them until I was in high school. I did most of it by hand since I didn't have a sewing machine and I taught myself everything by deconstructing old clothes and seeing how they were cut and put together.

Thanks! That would be my killer of a Renaissance dress haha. It's proving to be quite the pain in the butt. XD

Wow, that's pretty amazing. I would never would have guessed you were self-taught by the quality of work you do.I'm attempting a lolita skirt myself and knowing your self-taught give me hope mine wont turn out looking like a cloth trash bag for sure XD

Haha,I wish you luck on your dress, though I'm positive you'll make it look magnanimous(:

Mhm! Yeah, I should dig up some of my SUPER old stuff and post it just for fun. XD

Oh absolutely! Just don't try to rush it and be patient with yourself if you mess something up because you can always fix it and what you mess up in one project, you learn for the next. (:

Thankies! I sure hope so. I'm really wanting to finish it up and wear it. XD
