I wish I had somewhere to wear my wedding dress again. It was a work of art.

That beaded lace cost $150/m… I bought 25cm! My amazing dress maker cut out the motives and placed them all around the dress, and scatterd them across the sunray pleated silk organza train (made out of the deep red you see above trimming the neck and sleeve). And all that pleating, oh my god. I don’t think we have any more pleaters in Brisbane, 9 years on. It’s quite depressing. There was 13 or so metres of red silk dupion in that dress and it was lined in cotton voile, my dress maker was so thoughtful about how easily I overheated.
