diandra paramitha sastrowardoyo  got married yesterday. it caused many broken hearts but look at her. so beautiful in white kebaya. the akad nikah was held at the dharmawangsa hotel with traditional javanese ceremony.

and here’s the picture of her on the engagement day last february. she looks stunning in red kebaya. the question, who design her kebayas?

her fiance was in the traditional clothes from south sumatra. and probably dian wore songket too.

3 days to go…

after getting the wrong pointy shoes that i hate, i finally get the white and simple peep toe that i love. they are 7 cm heels and i think i need to practice walking on them. so since last night, i walk around the house with the shoes.

my kebaya is done and dry cleaned too. now, i just have to create a list of things to bring to the venue, so i won’t miss anything.

while my kebaya is still on endless progress, my mom’s kebaya is already done.

she’s not in jakarta yet so she hasn’t have chance to try this on. it looks great.

here’s the fabric of the kebaya.

kebaya fitting part 3

19 Nov

10 days to go…

i hate to admit that my kebaya is still in the making. i had my last fitting and it was still not right. because the kebaya is heavier after the beading, the gravity pull it down and now the bustier is protuding.

and please ignore the buttons, there are so many of them so i didn’t button them all. they look messy in the pictures.
