A few weeks ago, I wrote about the progress of the wedding dress I was working on. It’s finally completed! I could not be happier with the result. I really enjoyed sewing this dress, perhaps this is the kind of style of dress that I would actually wear if I were to get married again. This dress is quite comfortable to wear as well, with a built-in bra, small cap sleeves for extra support and light weight chiffon and silk satin skirt.
Attaching the lace at the chiffon hem was the most time consuming part of making this dress. I hand stitched about 13 meters of lace! I could not use a sewing machine for fear of the chiffon puckering. It took about 10 hours just attaching the lace alone!
The dress has a sweep length train. Small pearl button and a loop were added in the center back, so the train can be shortened for reception.
