Description

The simplicity of this wedding gown is what I love!!! My friend`s daughter, Ma. Fernanda, was getting married, and I was so delighted to have been chosen to make her wedding dress. She is a lovely girl, and she wanted an elegant, clasic dress, and this is what we came out with……the pictures were taken in my home on her last fitting, so….the dress was not finish…..all the back is also full of flowers same a the front. She is a romantic….so…we chose hand made flowers, that I made with different silks but all in the same color. They were sewn and appy by hand over a “cushion” of swarovski crystals. The dress was close at the back with small loops made in the same silk and silk covered buttons. Shame I do not have a picture of the wole outfit!!! the veil was lovely in 4 layers and even longer that her train. She looked so lovely!!! I also made 3 flowers that she wore on one side of her head. This dress like all my dresses, was made with love, happines and prayers asking our God Father to bless this new couple, and that their lifes will allways be as happy as….their wedding day.

Material Notes

100% silk peau de seau, on the blouse, and 100% silk satin organza for the skirt.

    Yet another stunning dress! I always love to see what you will create next! Thank you for sharing all your beautiful creations. What a romantic dress this is. I love the flowers. And, hand work adds a special love and energy to the person that receives the finished work of art.
