#Seamstress Nicola's Wedding Dress

At the end of last year I was lucky enough to sew beautiful bride, Nicola's, wedding dress for her wedding at the beginning of February, this year. I have never sewed a wedding dress before, but it was very exciting after sewing many bridesmaid dresses, formal and ball dresses. I sat down with Nicola, and sketched her idea of her perfect wedding dress. She wanted a simple yet textured dress. She chose a fit and flare silhouette with a low back. After a few fittings, the shape of the neckline changed a little, but otherwise, the general shape and idea of the dress stayed the same. To add texture to the simple silhouette, Nicola chose to have the entire raw silk bodice covered in ruched in silk chiffon.

I absolutely loved making this wedding dress, and Nicola was the most perfect easy-going client.
