The body of Laura’s dress is a heavy silk crepe with a silk chiffon over-layer.
Laura was certain that she wanted an unusual lace with a vintage look. As there are so many laces available, I gave her some website addresses and she had a look herself. I often advise that brides do this, and next time we meet they have ordered a few samples, or ask me to order them. Laura turned up at her next fitting with a bulging folder of lace samples! There must’ve been at least 30 in there! (I want to say 50, but I’m trying to be realistic – there were a lot!!!)
After much discussion and pinning on the stand to have a look, she chose this heavily beaded lace for the sleeves/cape area.
Thanks for the pictures Laura & Freddie, and best wishes for a happy marriage! 🙂 xx
