Finally, the long waited queen gown costume I made for my daughter is published here!!!! With details and photographs, including those taken during the performance 🙂
A big thank you to all of you who encouraged me to sew it instead of buying it off-the-shelf. I never thought that I could finish this queen gown costume on time when I was given only 7 days before she wears it for the dress rehearsal and 11 days for the performance. I thought of getting one off-the shelf and embellishing it but I knew I wouldn’t be satisfied with the result. So……
Every time I walk into my craft room and see the queen gown costume hanging there, I’d think “I made this?” It is just like a dream that I spent 7 late nights and early mornings (I have a day job, so I can only sew it at night) to get it finished, with no pattern to follow!!!! Even my daughter couldn’t believe that it was made by her mum as I didn’t let her see the queen gown costume until I was almost completed it. By the way, kids are not allowed to enter my craft room, with pins and needles every where, it is a dangerous playground!!!
The performance just ended last Friday and the queen gown costume is a great keepsake especially for my daughter. Though the queen gown costume just had been on stage for a few minutes for the performance, that’s good enough to surprise the audiences. I received some sweet compliments from other parents, most of them don’t believed it that I sewed it, anyway I may not look like a tailor or a fashion designer, but I definitely am a hobby craftswomen.
