Maybe I'll jinx it by announcing it in my blog but I have been asked to make a bridal dress. And yes it's the full monty with a corset top, precious lace, hand sewn embellishments and layers of tulle! I have done two corsets in my days, but that was 15 years ago, so this will definitely be a handful for me. But I do thrive on challenges. I know several of you readers are much more savvy with formal wear than I am so I will probably shout out to you regularly throughout this process!
The dress she wants is inspired by this dress (okay, a knock-off really) from Stephanie James couture. Though I have been married, wedding dresses are alien territory to me. I had a simple courthouse wedding and wore jeans, a vintage cardigan and a tank top (but it was made in silk!). So this is going to be one big learning venture, that's for sure. Maybe I should do some undercover research in bridal stores?
