The finished article and the beautiful bride!

For those of you who have me on facebook would have seen, I did finish the dress in time for my friend’s wedding! I’m gunna be honest, I didn’t like cutting it that fine but I had been a bit slack in getting on with it sooner in the year. So, here are the photos!

The back needs an iron in these photos!

I really like the waterfall hem on the dress, makes it different. The knife and box pleats were new to me on this project and were super easy – didn’t mess that bit up! I really like them.

Now for the photos with the bride! She looked stunning and it was a really beautiful day.

Before I sign off for today, I do have a question. You may be able to see in some of the photos that I have some weird bodice wrinkles or boob lines as I started to call them. Any idea how I could have rectified this on my toile?


Boob lines :/

I thought they may have disappeared when I had added the skirt to weigh it down a bit. When I played with the darts, it didn’t help. I would like to avoid this next time I make something by ‘By Hand London’. Has anyone got any suggestions?
