vintage style lace wedding dress

A large number of my brides come from referrals in the form of a happy bride who I’ve had the pleasure of working with recommending me to their friend.  From time to time I am in the fortunate circumstance that I was with Frances where the referring bride was her sister!  I had created a super cute pale pink with polka dots tea length wedding dress for Victoria and it wasn’t too long after the wedding that her sister Frances… Read more »

Caitlin 50s Lace & Tulle Tea Length Wedding Dress

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… Read more »
