This is the wedding dress I built for my sister. Her wedding was last Sunday. It was an intimate ceremony in a small Ukrainian Catholic Chapel and reception at our parent’s house. Overall I was very pleased with the dress! My sister’s style is simple & comfortable (and she usually shops for unique items or details). So with this said, I think I captured her style in this dress.
She decided to do separates: a silk and lace skirt with a silk top (she wanted to wear the pieces again).
I made the top a few days before the wedding! I was stuck on what to do for the top. I was afraid of creating a top that looked too casual.
Then on Tuesday (before the wedding), I received BurdaStyle in the mail. I was EXTREMELY excited when I saw Dress 109B. I thought the top of the dress was exactly what I was looking for!!! (It had the cap sleeves I was looking for!) The unique sleeves added a unique detail and elegance to the outfit!
You can read more about the story of the couple and preparing for the wedding on my blog at www.marusyamarusya.com
More pictures are on my blog and we will continue to post more pictures of the day (and other dresses) as the photographer (my sister) edits photos.
