My husband has been such a huge support and made me a poster and flyers to have on display during the Wedding gown fundraiser at the Woman’s club last week. Such a gorgeous bride :)
We couldn’t quite get the length of the train to fit sideways in the studio for the shot I wanted but I had this one I took the livingroom showing the the train when the gown was in progress:
In the past I’ve hung up gowns on a rolling rack to hold up the weight while sewing the hem but I can’t do that in my current workroom. So.. I resorted to taking my machine down to the ground to sew on the blue hem trim. It worked really well.
We had a limited amount of Belgium lace and tried a bunch of possible placements. The final arrangement with it over the under-bust only was the cleanest and most elegant choice. We also played with different widths of blue on the bodice. We stayed with a more consistent width instead of doing the small edge seen here:
We had enough to do the halter strap but in the end the blue accent alone at the neck framed her better and brought out her eyes more. So you will see a blue halter strap in the final wedding gown.
Before the blue:
Here you can see the horsehair at the edges of the petals. This gives a more clean edge and finish for the blue accent details as well as stiffening so it maintains the correct shape and drapes as planned.
My client found this lovely Belgium lace to accent her Wedding gown. Isn’t it perfect!
The white lace will tie in with the primary white silk of the gown and create a more subdued accent under the bustline when laid over the blue silk as seen in this photo.
