My First Fitting

Yesterday, I had my first fitting with Hana. At first, I was not so ecstatic. I just recovered from a physical sickness and I’ve been thinking a lot of things causing emotional sickness. Oh well, I’ll have a separate post on that. While I was at Mcdo Megamall waiting for the mall to open, I am thinking of going home so I could rest. My appointment with Hana is at 3pm. So I have to wait 6 more hours. By the way, if you’re wondering why I am that early is I went straight from the office. Anyway, it is in my itinerary to buy clothes for our prenup on Monday so that will kill time.

Going forward, we arrived there at exactly 3pm. I was greeted by Hana. Natuto na ako from our previous meeting so mababa lang ang energy ko. But this time she is more energetic.

She said I would be fitting the test garment and the petticoat. I gave her the final silhouette I want. Buti na lang daw binigay ko yun.

I was directed to their kitchen where the bathroom is and she said wag daw akong mahiya “bahay nila yun”. Lol

So here goes my muslin fitting.

Aayaw ayaw pa ako nung una but when I saw myself wearing even the test garment and petticoat pa lang, grabe ang tuwa ko. Feeling ko pwede ko nang maging gown eto pa lang. haha…

Many adjustments were done because Hana said pumayat daw ako. Even the silhouette changed.

While I was changing clothes I didn’t know that my mother is talking already to Hana regarding her gown. Wow! Si mommy mag-HST na rin! haha

I’ll see Hana again on June 8 for the corset and adjusted petticoat fitting naman. 🙂

What will happen in May?

Just now I received a message. I am expecting it was Johan, my w@wie friend, she was asking me a favor and I thought she was following up. From afar, a very long name appeared in my phone screen.

Guess who? It’s Hana,my designer.

She said that we’ll have our first fitting this May and she will send me the schedule later. I felt nervous and excited! Nakabalik na pala siya from her U.S. vacation. I’m starting to admire her more – from a long vacation, now, she’s back to work.

Hmmmm she must be really good because she can pull up our fitting that fast.

Dreaming of Cecilio Abad

Just a thought…

If I have known that I’ll be shooting up my budget for my wedding gown I should have taken Cecilio Abad or CA Design Team seriously  in the w@w auction. And if I have won, maybe I won’t be having this dilemma choosing in my shortlisted designers.

For the meantime, here are some of my favorite gowns made by CA (grabbed from his page)

oh details details details

isn’t a perfect fit?

simplicity with the oomph!

classic elegance

And here’s from CAD Team, talents mentored by CA himself. (grabbed)

Am I the lucky bride-to-be?

A facebook message from a w@wie friend, Joed.

I just read the message and ignored it ‘coz it’s a link and I can’t open it through my phone.

The moment I got home, I immediately turned on my netbook and opened the link.

I have been bugging Joed for days regarding gown and budget issues and it’s so sweet that she remembered me. I said that I’m interested and I’ll compose an email then show to her for proofreading (para hindi naman magmukhang hayok na hayok ako sa gown na yun. ehehe)

Here is the exact email I sent.

======================================================

Hi Christia,

I was never aware of a post in RB regarding the wedding gown you’re gifting until a good friend sent me the link. I have been bugging her for days regarding gown issues and she thought that this might be the answer to my problems.

No budget for a wedding gown? – This line immediately activated my senses and as I read on I got so excited then I saw the gown. It was exactly what one of my pegs for a gown. And what excites me most is it’s a gift.

Now, I’m trying my luck if I could be the lucky inheritor of this beautiful gown.

Hoping,
Jenel

======================================================

Christia replied fast and I was shaky reading the message. Do you think I’m the lucky bride-to-be?

Unfortunately, I’m the second b2b who emailed her and she said for the sake of fairness she’s been in contact with the first one. She assured me that if there would be any problem with their transaction she’ll contact me.

Well, the gown isn’t meant for me. That’s life! 🙂
