My princess wedding dress

Amsterdam, Nethe...






Now that we are married for more than 12,5 years, it is about time I post my handmade dress. A good two weeks, after my darling man asked me, I got pregnant! Since we already set the date and it being a ‘third generation date’ we decided to still go for it. Because I would be 5 months pregnant I needed to create expandable boob and belly space. I finished the whole thing the week before the wedding cause I was growing very fast! Here is the result. The prince outfit was hired by the way….

Material Notes

satin silk for the main material and gold-thread embroidered tulle/organza for the inserts and scarf (and my husbands pochet, also our little car got a matching paint job on my bachelors party, sooo much fun!), lined with satin silk. All very challenging material combinations :). For the purse I used satin for the bag part and the organza for the handle.

Organza, Satin, Silk, Tulle
