Bex got in touch after she’d already purchased a sample dress from a bridal shop. Although she liked the overall shape of the dress she’d bought, she wasn’t in love with it and wanted me to make some changes to make it her own.
I made a separate lace dress to be worn over the top of the original strapless, full skirted satin and tulle dress, with a boat neck, half-sleeves and a row of original vintage glass buttons running down the back. The corded lace Bex chose had a gorgeous scallop edge, which I made the most of by using it across the front and back necklines, sleeves and around the skirt hem.
Bex had originally wanted the lace top to be removeable for the evening, but by the time the lace dress was made she loved it so much that she had me fully attach it, and wore it right through to the end of the night.
“Thank you so much for the stunning work you did on my wedding dress. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day.
I am so grateful for all the time and effort you put into it.
Lots of love to you and your lovely family.”
