A White Wedding

My vow to never attempt to make a white wedding dress was well founded. Something about the pressure of working with expensive white silk in a house full of sticky fingers, paint and occasional glasses of red wine has never really appealed.  However there’s nothing like a request from one of your favourite people to make you change your mind. And so I did. The fact that she is beautiful enough to look wonderful in a bin bag was also a positive starting point.

My friend had seen a 30’s inspired dress that she loved and we used that as the starting point for the bias cut design which we worked on together. I cut a pattern from cotton muslin first and then began the fearful task of cutting white silk crepe on my living room floor.

The result of my efforts is below which were both pleased with as she looked truly lovely.Image
