Several weeks of hard work and the wedding dress is complete [no I am not getting married, it's for a competition]. I didn't utilize any of the fabric manipulation techniques that I have been trying out, but embroidering the bodice with fabric was something new for me [if I may say so myself, it was quite successfu]. 100% silk, except the middle section is linen covered with raw edged silk. Bodice: embroidered and hand stitched with crinkle chiffon fabric. Internal bodice corseted and has a grossgrain belt, so everything stays where it should :) Lining and bodice of silk broad cloth, skirt: 2 layers of crinkle chiffon, beneath 3 layers of silk organza. A detachable train, also two layers. Fingers: bleeding!
