Default Quilted Wedding Dress

Based off my original wedding dress from 25 years ago this month, I made this quilted silk wedding dress. I am practicing for this daughter's wedding, I get to make her dress. I used Superior's Micro Thread and it is wonderful! The dress is not heavy and no added embellishments, thought the silk held its own quite well.
Thank you for looking.

Just stunning. I can't believe this is just the 'practice' one. I also think her socks complete the ensemble!

Ditto - hard to believe that's a practice dress. Both of them are beautiful -- great job.
