My custom wedding dress

Added Oct 3, 2008

by liezlthewiezl

Johannesburg, So...






I saw a dress in a boutique that was R10 000, so I bought material, 3 patterns, beads, lace etc and created my own for a mere R900!

Material Notes

Lace, Satin, Beads, Boning

    Thanks for the compliments everyone – it really didn’t take that long – 7 hours to cut and sew the lining – 7 hours to cut and sew the lace – then about 10 hours to sit and bead it… all in all worth the time!
