Blooming Sakura by Yume-ka Blooming Sakura by Yume-ka
The beginning of the photospam 8D

Completely remade Sakura dress from 5 years ago, the only think I salvaged was the flower headband = =
Ugh, the bias tape was torture. It was like stretch satin or something and kept making everything bunch together. Hope it doesn't show up too much in the pics.

Most of the sewing was done in one night and there are still a few things that still needs to be finished but I was short on time in order to make it for a shoot before the blossoms fell.

The ball thing is actually something I found in the gardening section and then painted it. Feather inside was painted with the design and then steamed so it would bend into shape :')


Much thanks to my photographer for taking the time to shoot with me and also thanks to David for being an assistant!

Thanks! I had a good photographer! 8D
Haha, well I didn't do everything in one night (that would have been impossible). Most of the tedious work was done beforehand (like painting the 80 bells), so I just needed to put stuff together and sew it all.
