I made my own wedding dress! The bodice is modified from the BurdaStyle (strapless tea length wedding dress) – mainly widened and lengthened for my tall frame. I then attached a full circle skirt, under which I made a petticoat out of bridal tulle. I attached a flirty blue trim to the bottom (mostly to avoid seaming it) and some ribbon roses to the neckline. The day was a ball and even more fun in my swishy flirty dress!

Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
