Kelly’s new wedding dress! Except for a few small details, it is completely done, as of March 19th, 2008!

Here is a detail of the bodice, showing the lace overlay and small rosette, as well as the band added as an off-the-shoulder sort of sleeve.

Here is another detail picture, showing the lace overlay better.

Here is a detail of the lower hem. There are rosettes on six ruched-up areas around the hem, each of which exposes lace trim beneath.

More pictures will follow, as the other dresses come along!!!
Please feel free to comment!
Bye!

  1. Kelly provided me with your website. I made my daughter’s and daugh-in-law’s wedding dresses so I can relate to the work involved. The dress is very nice. I especially love the bottom finish. Looking forward to seeing the other dresses which I know you are madly trying to finish this week. Best of luck.
