Description

Hi I’m in the middle of making this wedding dress. It’s half stitched half pinned. I’m thinking how do I finish. Flowers or lace at the bottom, Add some bling or go the vintage way and keep it simple?.

    I think this is already nice. Add some pearls detail at the waist will make it more exquisite

    Lace, lace and lace. If the 20s-30s feeling is your goal then cover from the bust seam downwards with pointy French lace. Now budget wise………that’s another story, but elementary my dear cherishb…..elementary!

      I was thinking lace, then I was going to inlay tiny pearls in the lace. I was going to do this around the bottom hem too. Finding the right lace at the right price is the thing. I was thinking guipure lace but that runs into £100 + . I will keep looking. I’d rather let it stay unfinished a while so I can find the right lace than cheap out and ruin it. Thank you for your comment :-)
