The Wedding Dress

It's been a whirlwind two months since I last posted. I got married on 6th December, and the entire day went wonderfully. Four days later we flew out to Europe for two months, fulfilling a long held childhood dream. We just arrived back to Australia this week. I will write another day about my sewing plans for the year, but now I want to share the wedding dress.


The whole dress was a labour of love. I combined Folkwear's Armistice Blouse with a self drafted skirt and insert waistband. It was embroidered, pintucked, and lace inserted.



























The bridesmaid dresses turned out wonderfully.

And finally some pictures of me with my husband, because in the end the wedding wasn't about my dress, it was about our marriage and the beginning of our lives together
