Wedding dress progress

04 Apr

Oh, it´s been quite a while since my last post. I´ve been very busy with my wedding dress project. It requires a great deal of hand stitching on slippery fabric, so it consumes almost all of my sewing time. The dress is so fun to make, with every little step it get´s more beautiful.

The main part of the bodice is made out of sheer silk mousseline. While sewing I had to run a tissue paper under the seam, otherwise the machine would have swallowed up the fabric.

On the back I hand sewed a lace applique with tiny stitches:

The front inserts and they´re lining are made out of silk crepe de chine:

ImageAt this state I had another fitting with the bride. The bodice fits perfectly and she´s very happy with it. I can´t wait to see the finished dress on her, she already looked so beautiful in just the top part 🙂

Next comes a lot of hand sewing – I need to hand baste the crepe de chine to the venezia underlining for the skirt parts.
