Description

This is a Vogue pattern, slightly adapted. We wanted a wedding gown for an older bride rather than designed for a meringue-carrying 19 year old!

Material Notes

The embroidered silk organza was embellished with sequins and beads. It was hard work!

    Nice work, Kate. Looks like an awful lot of beading but such a nice result xx

      Thank you. Yes, the beading takes HOURS! But is fun – until you drop the sequins on the floor!

      I think the first time I heard a wedding gown describes as being like a big meringue was in Four Wedding and a Funeral! :D

      And thank you. I have to say I do love the design.

    I think this looks lovely on her. I really like these sheer sleeves for wedding/formal dresses, you don’t see enough of them (love them because I had them for my wedding dress, and because I don’t really like my arms – hence not having them on my dress!)

    You did a lovely job on the sequins and beads. All the very best for the beautiful bride!

      Thanks. The photos aren’t of the best, but I may get some from the wedding.
