Here are some pictures of my 19th-century-inspired wedding dress. The first two are from my wedding day. I'm trying to find a better picture; hopefully someone else got a better angle!

So what are you going to make next, and out of curiosity what else have you made, looks professional to me, post some of your other garments I would love to see them. I love to sew myself and this really inspired me.
Thanks.....Kat

BTW - where on Earth did you find that wonderful poster?
