The Tulle Skirt
Since the mini dress is silver, I don't want it to look super metallic. This means I need to match it with a darker skirt so it would expose my curves more and flaunt the right assets to balance everything off. Unfortunately the tulle that was left in my stocked materials was color white considering the fact that I am running out of time, what I did was to buy a fabric dye and followed the instructions in the sachet.
|Fabric coloring process|
I boiled the water in an Aluminum cooking pan then immersed the cloth after 20 minutes. Next, open 3 sachets of black fabric dye and pour it in the boiling water then allow it to be absorbed by the cloth while being boiled. Add 3 tablespoons of salt and a let it boil for a few minutes more then let it dry.
|It didn't turn out as I expected but it is a good combination with silver since it is a few shades darker|
Designing and Sewing the Skirt.
First and foremost , I have to be careful in cutting the tulle since I only have enough of it or else my look would be a disaster. Guided by my instincts, I got over the stress of cutting and attached the ribbon on the hem of the skirt. Sewing the body of the skirt has been hassle free and attaching the garter was easy breezy. Eventually, achieving the puffy open tulle skirt didn't give me any headache.
My Sister's dress
This is an emergency formal gown project so I was able to put all the materials together. My sister's dress is quite similar with mine. We exposed the lower extremities to add some height.
We went to take a good shot of the dresses and I was at ease that somehow in my own opinion, we were able to pull it off.
My sister and I made our own artsy crystal masks. My concept was all about having my own empire someday hence, I had this as an end product.
|Made of Assorted genuine crystals and synthetic pearls|
|I won the best in mask award <3|
|She used striking colors too and 100% genuine crystals|

Our look won't be complete with the absence of my Jewels so I decided to pair a black Chandelier crystal neck piece and my theme appropriate Silver-Black crystal wrist cuff with my Silver two-piece dress and my precious Pearl jewelry set with my sister's Black gown.
I am delighted with the result and was able to put all the pieces together. W enjoyed the rest of the night with the celebrant.
