The Second BERNINA 3 Series Look From Nicky

Added Nov 22, 2010

Hanoi, Viet Nam






This is the sencond look that i created for the contest. It is inspired by the Cheongsam, a Shanghai traditional clothes from the 20’s. I think it is a great idea to bring some asia fashion from the past into this project, and the 20’s is the era that caught my attention , I made the dress out of a purpleish pink silk dress and some lace ruffles. I think it is a suitable dress for a more formal, sophisticated party.




Spring, Fall
Garment Type
Classic, Evening Wear
Lace/Sequins, Silk

      Yea thanks Nicky. :) I guess I’m just this way because of my family. They never like my stuff I make and never say its that good so I’m always trying to do it better. My mum is a good sewer and she looks down on all my clothing because they aren’t sewn as well as hers. So I’m just built in thinking its terrible, but I’ll take a step back and like my work a bit better. :) Theres only been one dress everyone liked which was my last years Christmas dress. I’ll put it up now for you too see. I don’t have a great pic though. I feel lots of pressure this year to make a knock out dress after lasts years one. :( its hard.
