It started off as a very simple 1950's silk dress. I've been going to TONS of weddings lately and started feeling a little silly so I wanted to make this creamy dress into something more romantic. There was a spot of yellow from age on the top of one shoulder so I planned the flower placement around that and let it grow from there.



I used different texture/color fabrics for the flowers. You can see more before/afters and my step by step flower tutorial here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.197199993651963.41882.120862474619049





End result: I'd totally get married in this! Let me know if I left something out in the tutorial.
