A little montage of photos from Arran and Marta's wedding at the end of April. Why am I uploading this you ask? Because I made Marta's wedding dress!
I have to say, its probably been one of the most stressful projects I've ever done. Whilst I always strive to do the best I can on cosplays, none of them are even close to the calibre I'd feel happy for someone to wear it at such an important event!
Thankfully, the whole thing turned out wonderfully, Marta was very pleased, as was her new husband, and I was getting compliments all day about my creation. So it makes all the stress totally worth it.
Dress is made from my own design and an adapted pattern, in an ivory cotton-wool blend fabric. It is fully lined and does up with a zip in the back, concealed with corset lacing (which you can see in the middle picture, yay!). The sleeves, neckline and waist are trimmed with ivory braid.
Dress was made to Marta's measurements, about a UK size 6.
Probably about 50-60 hours work, if not more, spread over a few months.
