Description

The draping on the bodice and the pleating on the skirt part gives emphasis on the waistline. The draping is hand stitched to ensure flawless form on the body. The fabric flowers are all handmade, layered with accent fabric, each one hand cut , individually hand stitched with the beading onto the bodice. The tea length skirt gives it that vintage appeal.

The dress is built on an undercorset that has 10 boning channels, an adjustable hook and eye back closure and padded cups.

The dress is fully lined.

Visit my blog to see the photoshoot :) We had fun!

      I think people who dream of a wedding, see themselves wearing white :) but I see weddings with brides wearing non-white gowns and they look awesome…it just depends on what color of course :P

    Very elegant. The sheer fabric and the softness of the colour makes it a true dream. And the flowers – simply beautiful. Kudos to you.

    Simply amazing! The bodice looks like it was sent from heaven, seriously, it sounds kind of cheesy but it is stunning! It has given me the inspiration to make something similar (TRY to make something similar…), but it’s so feminine I would have no idea when to wear it.

    This is by far the most beautiful project I have seen come up on burdastyle in such a long time! I just want to touch it and inspect it to see how you mastered it! Flawless.
