Lace applique for my wedding dress.
The idea was based on the Dior dress that Emily Blunt wore for Vanity Fair.
The image of the lace is the material I bought…so you can appreciate how much cutting was involved!
How the wedding has been and gone, I can finally put up images of my dress (didn’t want the groom to come across them online). I didn’t make the dress – my wonderful friend did http://felicitywestmacott.co.uk/
I just did the blue lace (and the little flowers at the top of the bodice)…although I say ‘just did’ – I worked out it easily took me 200 hours to sew all 22meters of the hem. yikes! Totally worth it though!
