my best friend´s wedding, pt.1

19. Juni 2006
still sewing, though you might not believe it.

this is the bridal bag for my best friend, who marries on july, 1st.

brauttasche

the pic is bad... the color is more off-white, the photo is too dark.

it´s very small (about 15 x 20 cm) and is based on a simple rectangular pattern to hold just the most neccessary things. closes with velcro.
thin satin shoulder strap (not on the pic.)
this bag has no lining, it´s lightly stiffened with vlieseline s320.
it´s made of two layers cream-white satin, and an extra-layer of ruffled poly-organza.

the lace is a piece of the bride´s dress that fell off because it was shortened, this is handsewn to the bag.

now i´m waiting for the materials for the small pillow for the wedding rings.

...and i still need a dress for myself. ô.O

  3. wow... you're best at working under pressure?! I usually am, I think, but still... I'd be pretty scared if I didn't have a dress 12 days before such an invitation ;-) But I'm not a fast sewer, so I hope you are :)

    not bad, maddy! *fg*

    what do you plan for your dress? we've bought a few nice things over there in aschaffenburg. what about the sewing pattern?

    it must be japanese, I guess.

    tell us, we are sooo curious.

  9. when she waits long enough starting to sew her dress, the dark rings under her eyes may not be makeup... *fg*

  11. Mhm.. like a newborn day? What kind of day? A sunny day or a foggy day, when it doesn't seem to get bright? *fg*
