Hi there  We sew retro readers
I’m making my wedding dress and have made 2 possibilities, both based on the Elisalex (By Hand London) bodice.

The first is guipure lace, lined with silk (both from Tessuti) with a pencil skirt. I think it needs a wider (and not so tight) belt.

The second is a silk taffeta, orange shot with pink, screen printed by Babbarra Designs Maningrida (from Nomad Art, Darwin). I’m thinking a sash self-belt, not so wide and tied at the back.


I can’t decide which to wear, maybe both? one for the ceremony, one for the dancing? thanks for reading. (More photos on my blog barbarajanemade.wordpress.com.)
