My first wedding dress..

..well, not really MY wedding dress. It's the first one I made in 1999 (I think).
I was living in Cape Verde then and my friend Guta asked me to make her wedding dress.

The dress itself is made in 3 parts: the top, the straight skirt and the train/outer skirt which could be removed during the reception.

I also made the bouquet, the head band/pin, favours and ring pillow/basket.

I had to make pictures of the framed original photos as the photos as "glued" to the frame glass (as you can see on the photos).

The fabrics used were: a decorated organza for the top and pink (ish - salmon colour) satin and plain white organza for the skirts.
