I'm considering this wedding dress to be an ultimate restyle. I'm retaining the basic skirt from the original gown and I'm using similar features, like lace netting. I applied the netting to the bodice today. Here are a few pictures so you can get a sense of it.
Tomorrow I plan to cut the netting for the overskirt. I'll intersperse some other projects here so you don't get bored with this dress. It's going to be a painstaking project because I want it to be perfect, of course.
On another note, another one of my projects was featured on the Green Crafts Showcase at Crafting a Green World! I am very happy to say that my latest mom jumper restyle was one of the five projects featured for June! Thanks for all your comments and encouragement.
