Istanbul , Turkey
Some of you may remember a couple of weeks ago I posted some not quite finished pics of my best friends wedding dress which I have been working on – on and off since June.
Well the wedding was today and I thought you may want to see the final thing on the lady herself.
The biggest change is that the bride embroidered some beaded panels which I turned into epaulettes and a cummerband for the final flourish. After all the intentions to have this finished weeks ago, I was sewing up till gone one o clock last night and my fingers were raw – I feel a bit emotionally exhausted about this now – Not sure I will do another but glad I did this and most people seemed to love it – with a couple of people who didnt know asking if it were a designer item ( which in it’s humble way I guess it is)
