This past summer I was contacted about making a custom-fitted wedding gown for a client in Australia. She’d been following my blog for a while and remembered the Beaded Leaf Gown that I made way back in the 9th grade. She asked if I could remake the Beaded Leaf Gown into a wedding dress her size. I’d already wanted to remake this dress, because there were a lot of kinks in the construction of the first design. This time I was able to sew it without any of the technical problems that I ran into when I first made it. Therefore, when she asked me to make it for her wedding dress I was excited with the idea of recreating it!
If you’d like to read more about the process and see more photos you can check out the full post here over on my blog:
Lace, lining, interfacing, boning, tulle, thread, hooks and eyes, beads, invisible zipper
