Helsinki / Turku...






I got the idea for this dress from Emma’s wedding dress on Glee. I totally loved the front and I’ve always liked low back dresses. So when I found this fabric (Marimekko’s HEINÄ) on flea market, I knew exactly what to do with it. Emma looked so darn cute in her wedding dress! I love my version of it already!

I was thinking about adding a white belt with a bow or something but I am not sure yet so if you have ideas, please comment :)

Material Notes

Cotton, I think




Garment Type
Bridal, Classic, Evening Wear, Romantic

      yes mostly I did. The top part I created myself but for the hem I used a ready pattern since I was going after nothing fancy.

    I think the belt is not necessary because the dress is really fitted,but if you choose to add one it should be a fabric belt and maybe in blue.

    Ugh, that fabric is so gorgeous.

    The belt you are wearing in these pictures seems to look pretty good with it :)

    Yes, I think a white bow or maybe a fabric belt that could also hide the metallic look would suit this dress very well. It is lovely !!! :)
