I've made a number of dresses for people invited to a wedding but never for the bride herself, so I was thrilled when this flamenco dancer bride approached me ..

I crocheted the bruges lace sleeves and used a mix of materials for the dress. Enjoyed it from start to finish!

Thanks a lot! I carefully hand stitched the sleeves to the dress, no trouble at all.
