Omg thats gorgeous!

I've got BIL's wedding in January and I'll need a dress

Whats this made of?

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:03:56

long story..i made the underdress from a cotton/lycra mix..
theeeeeeeeeen
took yards of chiffon, made it soaking wet, threw really dluted dyes all over it and hung it up over our bath for a couple of days, letting it all drip down and into the fabric..

i bought the trim from an asian fabric shop near us..it's so pretty!

Have you studied design then or is it just a talent you have?

misdee Thu 01-Jun-06 16:07:34

thats lovely. sparklygothkat would love one

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:07:39

not really..i did textiles and art up to a level, then did psychology, then art history..
but it's been something I always do at home..no need to study iyswim..i've learnt through the love of it..and lots of trial and error..

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:08:33

hope you're all looking at the slightly better pics i've posted too.lol

Wow - that looks stunningly original. Is it for an adult or child? (sorry to be dense but saw your baby bootees earlier )

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:18:34

no this one was made for me when I was pregnant..

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:19:04

but designed to still fit and look great with smaller boobs and no bump..lol

FrannyandZooey Thu 01-Jun-06 16:19:57

Wow - gorgeous.

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:22:56

I haven't made them for a while..but I could do if requested..

beansontoast Thu 01-Jun-06 16:23:30

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:24:23

you can see the detail in the thread called ' the dress again'
or something..lol

satine Thu 01-Jun-06 16:24:26

I'd love one - but how does the bodice fit over large norks? Sadly the bra-less look isn't great for me!!

Puddingclub Thu 01-Jun-06 16:30:00

Absolutely stunning

Want one!

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:31:39

babyonboard Thu 01-Jun-06 16:32:04
