Fun Times in Fantasy Worlds~*~ from Sci-fi to DIY

My Rapunzel customer had a special request for the winter of 2013.  She was attending Disney on Ice in costume and needed a special jacket or cape to wear.  We came up with a gorgeous design, found the perfect matching velveteen/velour, lined it with purple and a special lace trim.  It ties at the neck with a velvet ribbon and has a huge hood.  It ended up being super thick and warm and a great accessory for the Rapunzel Dress.

Earlier in 2013, I was approached to see if I could recreate a picture in a magazine as a wedding dress.


I said I would try 🙂

Here is the best picture I got of it (shown without the sash) before it went off to the wedding.

Custom Design Lace Wedding Dress by MiaLa

 I used two separate patterns.  One was a princess line formal that I chopped at the waist.  The skirt I changed from the very full one of the original pattern and actually used the pattern I use for my Princess Amidala skirt with the mermaid fishtail additions taken off.  The bottom layer was ivory bridal satin, plus an ivory liner with a floral lace overlay.  I used the scalloped edges of the lace to make the top “straps.  They met in the back in a deep v and the raw edge at the arms was trimmed in a narrow strip of the other edge of the scalloping.  She was planning to wear little red flats with it.  I can’t wait to see some pics of the special day 🙂

And Finally, some wedding shots!  She looks amazing 🙂

The top is a half corset, fully boned and lined with a lace up back.  The sleeves hang off the shoulders for an authentic recreation look.

The pants are harem style but not too baggy with a lace up closure in the back as well.  They can be made sheer as in the photo, or lined .  Also included are hand sculpted accessories:  headband scarf, necklace, and earrings.

Available on Etsy 2011, $285

I had this pretty peach vintage prom dress for years and kept trying to make it work for a theater show or …something…until I realized what it was born to become!  I did not do much to it except for puff out the sleeves, add neck scallops,  and add the hot pink sash and bottom tier.  I will probably be putting it up for sale Halloween 2010 unless I decide to keep it for myself 🙂
