Sugarplum Blossoms

While visions of sugarplum fairies danced in my mind, I dotted the bodice with fascinating blossoms of plum, rose, yellow and blue. The light pink and olive Japanese lace worked its magic as it encases the bodice like that of an entrance to an enchanted garden.

For the base of the dress, two different shades of blue were used: Alice Blue and Periwinkle. This decision was so as to create a more dimensional effect to the dress. The lively, flouncy skirt that resembles layers of cherubic clouds is crafted by using a combination of pleating and gathering technique, along with paying extra attention in differing the lengths of different portions of fabric. The end result is an extravagant ballerina tutu-esque skirt.

With a touch of mystical sparkle, in the form of Japanese beads and Swarovski crystals, this dress is the adorable, fairy-tale gown, befitting a cheery, glowing bride.
