Wedding gown!

Postby Pamlin » Wed May 07, 2014 8:00 am

It's taken a long time, but it can finally be revealed! I made a wedding gown for a dear friend, who wanted the colors of garnet and grey/silver for her colors. 50 hours of beadwork on the embroidered overlay, and some amazing fun with the garnet taffeta undies, and she was a VERY happy bride!

And petticoat

The important parts: We used TV101 for the bustle, TV170 for the petticoat, TV261 underskirt, TV365 August Overskirt, and TV460 Cuirass bodice (with a modification on the neckline shape)
