victorian wedding gown

Happy and thankful to share these pictures of the more than lovely couple Ivana and Alexander. I made the wedding gown for Ivana :) The gown is made of many yards of high quality ivory lace, hemmed with a tenfold of trims and lace trims. The pattern is inspired by late Victorian fashion, adjusted to my design. 

Wedding Gown with Train and Rosettes, Anonymous, 1812

silk, l 120cm.

Margaretha Johanna Weddik Wendel wore this gown when she married Baron Hieronymus Nicolaas van Slingelandt on 25 November 1812. It follows the early 19th-century fashion of full evening and court gowns, which usually had a tulle ruffle at the neckline and sleeves, and a decorated hem. The decoration consists of a satin border, pleated ribbon, roses, and loose petals.
