Finally it was my turn to make a wedding dress for myself! I make for others all the time and now it was my turn. I used French beaded lace so many hours of cutting and hand sewing and making sure everything was matching. I made it with a built in corsett, it had pearl buttons down the CB, scalloped hemline and neckline and just a basic satin backing and lining. I just wanted it simple and elegant vintage feel to it. The fabric was so ornate I didn’t want to spoil it with to many details. I had a 5 meter length train on my veil.
