I took a couture class for school and decided to make a wedding dress. I am not getting married, but I did make it to fit me because I could not afford the fabric to make it for an actual model's size. I am short enough where I could use a lot less fabric. I hand appliqued the lace pieces on the bodice. I also did all of the beading on the bodice by hand, and I attached the scalloped lace by hand as well.

The design process was all me as well. I came up with the idea, draped the garment, made the pattern, and then did the mock-ups until I was happy with it. The skirt has a petticoat, and then there are three different layers of double circle skirts. The first layer is silk dupioni, the second is silk organza, and the top layer is silk taffeta. The bodice is a satin and has french lace appliqued on, as well as glass beading.

They very last photo is before the dress was complete, but it was the best picture I had of the applique and beading on the bodice.
