One day I’ll get around to shooting fancy pictures of my costumes, until then, I give you candid wedding snapshots!
I designed this gown for the Victorian wedding of two very dear friends. While the day itself was incredibly hot, nothing beats swanning around a historic house in a glam gown.
I call this the Victorian Garden Gown, due to the colour scheme and embroidery. Partly chosen because I love green, and partly because I’m trying to work through my growing stash of fabric!
For the bodice and skirt (complete with pleated dust ruffle) I chose an olive green taffeta, contrasted with embroidered black silk panels. The bustle is textured green organza with a few black faux flowers peeking from its folds.
Gowns like this remind me why I love Victorian fashion – nothing feels more feminine than the swish of full skirts!
