Hey Noni Noni
« on: July 14, 2009 10:39:23 AM »

Wasn't sure if this should go in sewing or embroidery but there is at least 30 hours of embroidery on the top and in the train and the embroidery is my favorite part I made the dress from the ground up though.

Close up on vines that went all the way around the train


The vines also went all the way arounf the neckline of the dress



the whole dress the day of the wedding


it was a simple pattern of vines and purple roses but it went all the way around the train and the front so it took a while but it was worth it!

You look amazing! And you did such an amazing job! I wouldn't be brave enough to make my own wedding dress, doesn't help that I am only a mediocre seamstress.

FANTASTIC!  You should be so proud!  I love the blue in the back!  I wish I had thought of something like that!  Oh, and the stitching is great!

(Squeals!)  That's my Baby cousin!   I have to tell you all that the pictures do not do the dress or her justice.  It was beautiful and so is she.  Good work chica! Grin
