M’Lady Muse: Amellia Jade “Meia” V.

I actually took this opportunity to showcase a dress design I’ve been working on since last December 2014. I never got around to finish it until this January 2015 and that my cute muse was just as available for a quick photoshoot with my dress and my bag.

Introducing the Polka Jumper! A very high-waisted (though possibly empire-y?) jumper with an a-line cut skirt. The silhouette’s stiff – that much was the most noticeable when my friends saw it personally – and I kinda liked that effect? Twin buttons on the skirt strap are actually medallion designs? And super lightweight because it’s made from plastic that look convincingly silver upon first glance. *laughs*

I knew the jumper would look good with a white top hence a thrifty purchase was done days after I finished sewing the jumper. I wasn’t too much in a hurry to photoshoot — I only wanted a proper record of it. Plus I wished I was able to make my second dress design just in time for the shoot but unfortunately it was only half-way done. > x<) Bah! Shooting that very soon! I want to practice more of dressmaking and designing! Hee!
