Description

One of my favourite and most special projects to-date! I used the Sewaholic Cambie pattern as my base, but made it strapless and added a polka-dot tulle overlay.
I wore a bought wedding dress for the ceremony and meal, and changed into this shorter dress for the evening reception – much easier for dancing!
