I designed and constructed my sisters wedding dress from all natural materials. Her wedding was in located outdoors in a beautiful Florida Park. The bride is thin and she felt she needed added body, therefore, we decided on a modern Trumpet form, instead of a vintage flowing dress. We added the lace to create a natural pattern, as if flowers and leaves were covering the bride. The back of the dress has beautiful silk covered buttons the full length of the dress. The lace is overlayed and hand sewn onto the dress without creating any seams. I used Susan Khalji’s “The Couture Dress” on Craftsy and her Book “Bridal Couture”. The professional wedding photographer was Gaciel Santana Photography. She is the best photographer, and really makes the details of the dress stand out
