Wellington, New ...
I altered a gorgeous silk chiffon beaded wedding dress (US brand Jovani) for a client and she bought a lovely piece of organza with an embroidered edge for me to turn into a little honeymoon surprise for her new husband.
This was very easy to do and the negligee took about 4 hours, most of this time was appliqueing and changing threads. The g-string took a couple of hours mostly because the ribbon was a bit fiddly, I think I would do it differently in future but I didn’t have time to fit it on the client so making it adjustable with ribbons seemed like the best thing to do.
I didn’t get time to get a photo of the finished g-string but the third photo shows the main peice I made with remnants from the negligee.
Approximately 1.3 metres of embroidered organza
3 metres 6mm ribbon for negligee
Remnants from negligee for g-string
2-3 metres of ribbon (I used 6mm but it might look better a little wider)
