Just two months before the reception, I brought Asna to AzuraAzwa to get her dress done. I handed sisters Azura and Azwa the fabric I’d gotten earlier and they began measuring Asna and asking the kind of dress she would want. We settled for a boat neck, to be tucked inside a long peplum skirt.
Just a month before the reception, we returned for her first fitting session. Although the dress was a little too tight at the time, I think you can see how pleased she was when she saw herself in the mirror.
The designers thought the dress looked too plain and suggested some beading. I thought patching some lace near the neck would suffice.
If previously, Asna was a bit worried about being the flower girl, the dress changed her mind. She’s suddenly very confident. When I told her she’ll be the person who will lead the bridal entourage, she was excited:
“You mean I’ll be walking on the red carpet like a Hollywood star???”
And when I asked her if she would need a companion i.e. my brother to walk beside her on the day:
“No, no, no! I’m going to walk on the red carpet, ALONE!”
Looking forward to wearing the dress, too.
“Asna, is your dress done yet?” my mum asked.
“No, they’re going to put lace on it,” she said, smug.
Just days before the reception, we went for the final fitting. The lace was patched onto the blouse and the outfit was complete. The dress was altered, so it was more comfortable.
I think she looked super lovely. I’d love to get an identical dress in my size.
Asna’s super happy with it, too!
Thank you Azura & Wawa for doing an amazing job with the dress. Expect our return!
