San José, Costa ...
I made this dress one year ago, for my husband’s son wedding. I wanted to wear something in a different color, step out from my comfort zone (blue, black, pink) and when I saw Diane Kruger in Jason Wu at the 2010 Sag Awards I knew I had to try and make this dress!
It took me a couple of months to complete it, there was a lot of experimenting because I had never ruched or draped before and I wasn’t following any instructions, I made it all from scratch. But after many, many hours of hand sewing my beautiful dress was ready, and I love it!!!
