I finally finished my dress for the wedding,I'm happy with the results, it was a simple dress to construct and gives a nice fit.
However let's talk about the fabric: silk taffeta. This fabric wrinkles if you look at it, remember Lady Diana's wedding dress? It was silk taffeta. It also water spots...thankfully when it has gotten wet due to unforeseen circumstances (the iron dripped) it quickly dried without leaving a stain. It is a wonderful color, I believe it is cross dyed, one way pink the other blue to give the purplish iridescent color.
I finally decided on making the bows and I like the way they look.
I just love the shoes!!!
I'll have more pictures later after the wedding.
Tomorrow I'm off to New Jersey to fit the bride, wish me luck!
