Dancing Teddy Bears JSK Progress

I am finally back after a long while! ♥

I was actually just being lazy the past few weeks and a 
lot has happened. I don't really like blogging about my personal life
but let's just say that last week was the most horrible week 
I had to go through. From unprofessional bosses to getting mugged to
a family secret that I wasn't really ready to find out about (and it
obviously broke my mom's heart. I hate it when my mom cries..).

So yeah, Most of the times I'm off from work, I just
want to treat them as, well, my day off -- from everything. I just want
to take my rests. Our workplace is the most stressful
environment I have to endure in my every graveyard shift.

But yesterday was different. I had to do something to
ease off the anger, sadness and every tiny bit of negative
energy in my system. And I know that sewing my own
dress will definitely do the trick. If my back could talk, it
would so lovingly throw a bunch of cuss words at me.

I decided to try to finish sewing a skirt or a dress out of my teddy
bear fabric. You can see my previous post about it here.

I was planning to just make a skirt out of the fabric. I ended up
making a JSK instead. And, wow I slacked off for almost 3 months! 
Now that's a long resting period lol!

Here's the JSK so far:

Sorry for the sucky photos, I took this earlier this morning right
after sewing and my hands were trembling lol, I was like, okay that's good enough. XD

It's far from done. It's missing a lot of elements, 
the sewing is still quite messy underneath.
I actually used raschel lace for the top part of the bodice. 
I do not like using raschel lace but it turned out nicely. What do you think? :)

I couldn't finish it 'cause I started at night up to 4 in the morning. My
back is, I think, developing rayuma (haha, kidding of course!) so I had to sleep. 
I wasn't able to finish it. I can't wait to, though. I swear I'm gonna get back on it
next weekend! ♥

Custom Blue Tea Party Shoes! ♥

I got my tea party shoes from the shoemaker! Though they might not
look exactly like AP's tea party shoes, I instantly fell in love with them! ♥

I took photos of the shoes in the office, hence, the bland carpet. lol;;

So here they are:

At first I was like, woah, the color could've been more lighter and the shape is a lot different
from the original. Not to mention, the bows on the front part of the shoes are smaller. 
But then, when I got to wear them. I suddenly felt... happy. ♥

I love the bows on the back part of the shoes. ♥

I love the sparkly heart buckles! So adorable. ♥

The best part is that they were able to put perfect scalloped edges. The woman
from the shop I claimed these from told me that they had to make sure the edges were
even and that's why it took so long for them to finish this. I'd argue with her but I was too
busy looking at how perfect the shoes look on my feet and thinking omg I love them, so cuuuute.

I wore them from the shop to the office. They're the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. 
Another plus points! I'd wear flat shoes over heels anytime because I usually choose comfort over
everything else, so these are, again, so perfect. ♥

I can't wait to wear them this saturday with my pink and blue coord. Whoever's
going to attend Ozine Fest, see you there! ♥
