|Angelic Pretty: Twinkle Carnival JSK|
So why is it my favorite dress otherwise? Besides, that it is stunning and even more beautiful in person. *o* I didn't realize until it got here in person that, TC is actually made from a lovely shantung material which gives the fabric a bit of texture and a low luster shine. While the shantung is a polyester blend, it is of a high quality, which gives it a lovely hand, drape, and appearance of silk dupioni shantung.
Of course, being a seamstress, my favorite part of seeing any kind of clothing, brand or not is how a garment is constructed, from the inside out. I am fascinated with putting the pieces together, of figuring out the time of techniques, stitches, or variables necessary that make up a garment. : 3 But I won't bore you with that, suffice to say this dress is truly skillfully put together. I especially adore the built in petticoat!
Finally, the cherry on top of course, the print itself. The darling glitter ponies on TC are what bring the subtle sparkling of the tulle, and the shimmer of the lace edging together, and make this garment fit for royalty. I, for one, have always wanted to know how one makes a glitter print!
Finally, since I was unable to participate in the recent International Lolita Day, some candid shots (with sneaky cameos of Miss Cookie) of me in Twinkle Carnival! <3 Oh, I can't believe it is mine!
