Well, since there is a wonderfull article on lace, I decided to post one of my lace wedding gowns, and share with you all, the way I like to work with lace.
This is a marmaid style gown, and the beauty of this dress really goes into the lace. This is an exquisite french lace in soft cream, and the flowers and details have a fine golden thread……so delicate. For me, it is quite tyriky to work lace……….difficult… time consuming, but….i love every second of it!!!! because the result it allways so lovely.
I had a lace with double border, so very carefully I removed both of them to have the border for the hem line and all around the veil……and with the rest of the lace, the dress was made. If you notice, there are no cuts or seams in this dress (I mean in the lace, because in the inner lining, there are!!)…..everything is hand worked. The shape was given by small cuts and overlaping the flowers and shaping the lace, so to give the effect that the lace was made for the bride`s body (at least that is what I trie to do). Where the body meets the skirt, then I decided to join them in a zig-zag detail, full for hand cut flowers that have been sewn by hand also. You can see the neck line….well, that was done with lots of hand cut flowers, and I give a design to make it look like : a thounsand flowers…." and the same design goes all around till the back mets. Of course we have the borders right at the edge to have the lovely scalops of the lace. The back closes with buttons and loops. Hope you like it!!! it is really wonderfull to work with lace. Forgot to tell you………All the linings are worked in 100% silk charmeusse.
Beautifull french lace, and 100% silk
