A few weeks ago I completed the gorgeous lace and tulle vintage inspired tea length wedding dress for Caitlin. She now has the gown and is on the countdown until her big day in a few months in regional Victoria (and if I were her I’d be secretly doing dress ups every few days!!)
So last post I had completed the bodice and was about to cut and sew on the full circle skirt with the gathered tulle overlay. Once the skirt was added it was time to place all of the fabric covered buttons. Each of the buttons have been covered in matching fabric from the dupion silk in the gown and were placed evenly along the centre front of the bodice
The final gown looked a million bucks (even if I do say so myself) and I absolutely adore the gown. The only shame is I know there will be other brides asking for this very same dress and currently the fabric is out of stock. It will be a must to grab a little stash if I do ever see it pop up again as it is so lovely in this design.
Here are some final images of it about to be packaged and sent off to Caitlin along with her petticoat (that isn’t photographed with the dress of course but will give that lovely full 50s feel!).
I can’t wait to see some pictures from Caitlin’s wedding day – I know this dress will be absolutely perfect for her!
