Wedding Gown - Part One
This is my beautiful lace from Britex in San Francisco. It is Alencon lace from France--a bit of a splurge! I almost put it down, but my Mom said I should go ahead and get it since it was definitely my favorite, and I'm only making myself one wedding gown! We figured the quantity carefully, just enough to go around the neckline and waist, and a few motifs extra. It started as a double sided strip that I carefully cut apart.
Here is my final bodice muslin (about the forth or fifth!)
Playing with the lace on the neckline of my muslin.
My starting sketch. The final dress looks much like this, with a change of trim around the waist.
