This is my wedding dress.
It’s made primarily of off-white silk. The train is removable, and lined with three layers of organza to get the right shade of pinky-orange. I love how it flared out behind me when I was walking.
I really, really wish I had done boning in the bodice but I didn’t leave myself enough time to make it and I was terrified of screwing up.
The last picture is without the flowers and before we dyed the stretch lace to match the silk. Took several tries before the tea made the lace the right shade & tone.
My favorite part is probably the petticoats. They were a nightmare to make but totally worth it. I love the extra color they give to the dress and how they peek out when I’m dancing.
Obviously my sewing skills aren’t quite up to par, but overall I’m proud of this dress.
Ivory silk (bought the whole $20-a-yard bolt at Joann’s with a 60% off coupon. booyah), stretch lace, organza, netting, ribbon.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
