So ever since I made my first Bjork swan dress http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=310476.0 I've been getting requests to make more!

This one is a special custom order for someone who wanted it to wear as a wedding dress! I really love how it came out so I thought I would share it Smiley

I altered it from my original version by making the dress longer, adding a satin bodice and making the swan neck out of faux fur. The dress is fully lined and the bodice has boning. It even has a bead for the eye!





I hope you like it!

Oh wow now that looks amazing. You did and excellent job on the dress.
If you can try to post a pic of the bride in the dress. Even if you have to blur the faces out. I would love to see it being worn for the brides dress.

Wonderful!  The tulle going up the neck and using faux fur the neck are perfect finishing details.  And echoing SailorMaat, it would be a treat to see in on the bride.
