Here comes the bride...

Well, her gown anyway. This was yesterday's project. I made the dress form and the wedding gown. I've made a lot of mini wedding gowns but this one is by far my favorite. It's a beautiful cream satin with vintage embroidered lace appliques on the skirt. The bodice is cream lace over satin.
There's a chapel length train.
A touch of blue at the back waistband is a pretty finishing touch. The gown is permanently fastened to the mannequin. I used a combination of sewing and glueing to make it. All of the appliques were cut from the lace and handstitched in place. I'll be listing this in my etsy shop later today...just in time for all of those mini summer weddings. :)

Happy Monday everyone!

Thank you, Jody. The dress form is just a polymer clay doll sized torso on a stick. ;) Not too difficult to make, really.

You did a really good job with this one! I can see how it's your favorite!

Thank you, Katie. Isn't it great when we can see improvement in our own work?
