  • The eonian chimaera of the very you is the ever impeccable scenery I have fixed these irises upon.

  • I am being ghosted by a bogus predicament that looms out to be the headstrong spectre at the feast.

  • "Ego voco tu, Thanatos. Spiritus de mors! Thanatos, ego voco tu! Moon mouthed in undertones.

  • The night orb knows one nesting doll that's under lock and key.

  • My noddle is the lair of compact crotchet, cycling reveries and complexity.

  • With these eyes on your way is the sense of wonder that devours my lucidity. And when fortune swifts yours my direction, I dive into a seraphic stupor just every time.

Who is Moon Lei?

Posted by Moon Lei On 12 April 2 comments
She is an idealogue whose nous is atypical, her shoulder on the wheel, it is art she pushes to delineate with laces and stones, or silk and satin. What she knows of aestheticism is the utter offspring of her very mode.  Be that as it may, keeping abreast of her sundry conceptions is a tough row to hoe for they come in legions that ebb through the rumpus in her head. How does she halt the beautiful stampede from evanescing? The wind, she hushes. The walls, she brings forth. She, the Moon Flower, mostly scintillates upon the cheek of black quietude.

I know her. 
Those of her kind send her praises, while commoners do the outright opposite.

Leilani de Leon Santos is Moon Lei.
A blatant belligerent, I say not, but rather a tactical magus between the in-betweens,

Basic Draping

Posted by Moon Lei On 06 April 2 comments
Draping is the art of fabric manipulation that allows the designer to gain full control of his preference and ideas  by positioning  pieces of garment  on a dress form. Pinning is used to secure the pleats, darts, and gathers.

Madame Gres was one of the leading designers who adapted the concept of Draping, which started in 3500 BC through the creative minds of Romans and Egyptians.

I just finished Dressmaking I (Preparatory)
when I made this; and yes, it's pretty basic.

Bodice~ From Mid-Shoulder Waist Dart Pattern
Bottom~ From Full Bias (Circular) Skirt Pattern


Layout: Tulle on duchess.

These are hand-sewn flowers

Attaching the bodice..

Finishing the lining.. 

 Zipper gone wrong! I had to replace and resew it.

Piping consumed my patience; and I (blind)stitched that
dangling thing there :)

I'm currently studying Module 2 (Secondary Dressmaking)

Sewn are riots of cylinder beads, come a hundred and one spangles. Spot on is the lucent that counterbalances the lackluster.  Tones of blue, green to complement red; colors run side by side into a tout ensemble of arches, spirals, and random shapes.
