Things here at the studio have been so busy lately! I'm in the middle of running few courses right now which makes writing and blogging a little harder to get around too. So I thought I would do a post about a very special project that I completed this summer. It was a custom wedding dress and I'm so happy with how it turned out given that I was my first ever!
The dress was a tea length gown with a lace bodice and full satin skirt! The lace was all hand sewn and though you might not be able to see it them there are multiple seams within the lace. The purpose of doing this to is to fit it properly to the satin bodice. It's a little tricky because you have to try and sew the lace so that you are repeating as much of the lace pattern as you can. It's almost like a puzzle. I absolutely love hand sewing. I find relaxing and always feel a connection with the generations of women from the past who only knew this form of garment making.
Hope you enjoyed!
