Mermaid wedding dress

Added Nov 4, 2013

Novara, Italy






Here it is, finally, after more than one year of work, metres and metres of fabric and lining, kilometres of basting and sewing thread, an undefined quantity of boning tape, nylon petticoat netting, rigid tulle and stiffener, hundreds of strasses: MY WEDDING DRESS!

It is a mermaid dress, strapless, with a bit of train. The fabric is an polyester cady in optical white, incredibly soft to the touch and really shiny.

The dress is embellished with a decoration on one side made with self-adhesive strasses and two metal butterflies that were, in their previous life, hair clips!
