I'm getting married!!!! To the greatest and most handsome man. AND I'm making my own dress and pattern. It's a design in progress. Here is the beginnings and probably the most important part of the dress- the neckline!
Decades ago, when I was a serious fashion design student, I picked up some soutache pieces somewhere. While in school, I entered a contest using the the black soutache which I painfully hand beaded and the gown won a prized "Gold Thimble" at our graduation. Now I'm using the cream colored soutache which again I've lovingly hand beaded.
I will post more pictures as I progress. I am also making the table cloths and flower girl dresses and baskets so I am busy! Yikes.
