Wedding dress

Wedding gown – commission. Made with silk dupioni and beaded lace. Pattern was custom designed by myself (with the bride’s input, of course!)

Here’s a photo of the entire dress, before I attached the underskirt to the interior. The lace was hand sewn around the hem of the dress, then the silk was cut away beneath it to allow the detail of the lace to be more visible.

Here are some details, most of them hidden inside the dress.
Top left: I embroidered the bride and groom’s initials, just because!
Top right: Snaps to keep bra straps concealed and in place.
Middle right: Detail of the lace appliqué.
Bottom: Detail of dress interior. Net underskirt attached with hooks and eyes, waist stay, hook and loop closures.
