I really have no qualms making shrugs, its just that I feel I've re-interpreted the shrug a million times already and brides everywhere are wearing it. I love its modesty, but surely there are other ways to be modest :-)
Come final fitting few weeks before her wedding and I was really delighted of how the gown turned out, we tried on the shrug for the 1st time, and yes, it was ok.
Me, not so :-/
It can be more. She has this long swan-like neck that was just too hard to ignore.
I blurted out - "Baligtarin natin! "
"huh?! anong baligtarin?"
"baligtarin natin yung suot ng shrug!"
"subok lang, malay mo, maganda.... subok lang eh... tayo tayo lang naman andito eh"
"hmmm... tapos? hmm, o sige, bahala ka"
we removed the shrug and assisted her in wearing it front to back. It transformed right before our eyes, that even her sisters exclaimed - "ang ganda!"
I was thrilled, finally, it was her :-) We adjusted some parts of it, re-shaped the collar to hug the neck and it was perfect.
Here' s Lisa Macuja errrrr Doc Sheryl and the shrug on her wedding day - so beautiful and so regal. Her mom was so pleased with how the gown turned out and prodded her not to remove "the shrug" for the reception. Mom happy, me veeeeeery happy. takot ako sa moms no! hahahah :-D
As expected, I got my usual dose of alaska from Bong and Cj of Threelogy, and Karl about the baligtad na shrug and for something else, which I'd rather not discuss here. It wouldn't be normal to be spared from these guys. They just love me... They just love to make fun of me. Grrrrr. Di ko na talaga ulit sila gagawan ng suit! :-D
