Hayley's wedding dress

I had the honour to make Hayley's wedding dress last summer.  She came over to my studio with her mum to discuss the dress.  I started of by showing her my fabric sample book.  The design of the dress was very much lead by the beautiful jewelled lace she fell in love with.

The lace was the central focus of the dress with a scalloped scooped 'v' neckline.  I also used the beautiful scalloped edge on the sleeves.  A lot of brides want to cover the tops of their arms on the big day, lace is perfect for this, you get the covering without looking too heavy.

Dress doesn't fit the mannequin but fitted Hayley like a glove

"Firstly can i say a huge thank you for the beautiful dress you made !!!! It was so comfortable and i stayed in it all day which was great. I felt like a princess and you made exactly what i wanted."

I think you will all agree with me that Hayley looked beautiful on her wedding day.  Thank you Hayley for sending in those photos and letting me share your big day.
