This is the wedding dress for the bride of a dear old friend. They are getting married this summer barefoot in the grass by the side of a lake – good ole’ hippie style. On a little road trip to Montreal this January they made time to shop for her dress at my store. We wanted something off the rack that could be customized for her to feel self-expressed and unique. Working with fabric pins and scarfettes, we were able to come up with an embellishment that suited her curves and colouring. Look at how the blue leaves bring out her stunning blue eyes. The side slit on the dress is actually quite racey and the sheer voile just barely covers her bum. Somehow she pulls it off perfectly, looking both classy and cute and sexy and just perfectly “Lena”.
When we took the dress back to the studio, i steamed all the pins off the back of the embellishments and stitched them to the dress. On the back of the dress, I continued the stitching of an ivy and leaf pattern in blue and bronze coloured thread. I added some sequins by hand and voila! A custom dress is born!
It was a true honour for me to be asked to make her wedding dress. Every time a friend asks me to make their dress, i feel really blessed and happy.
