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!!!

  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.
