A golden wedding dress!!

This dress is made in silk duppioni color soft gold.  It has a ballony skirt divided in 8 petals.  At the center of each petal, I put a big tear that has been machine embroidered and embellish also with cristals.  The top or blouse is just very simple  design but has been also machine embroidered in gold and embellixh with crystals.  At the back had a conceled zipper and laces up.  The veil is made in french tulle and it has crystals all scatered .....    The skirt is very very full, and  it took 24 yds of silk, but even that you wont belive this, it was not a heavy garment at all.  The bride was very happy, and I was too, I loved the fitting!!!


Pattern or design used: My Own Design - Adriana Orozco

Did you underline it?/ If so, with what? I have a wonderful source for Italian silk...contact me if you'd like the site info.

Getting started on a MTB gown of Silver Raw Silk. Will post pix when finished...hopefully before Christmas.

I am a designer who specialize in designing and making wedding and evening gowns. I have tryed to upload many of my dresses, but unfortunately the pictures have to many pixels.....or something like that, so, I can not upload them. Let me tell you that it makes me very happy that you like my work. Best regards from the beautifull rain forest in Costa Rica!!!

suesewing suesewing writes: WOW!!!! It is amazing. What type of sewing machine did you use for the embroidery? I assume you hand sewn the crystals on the veil. Was this your first bridal gown you made? I just love-

manella manella writes: OMG! What a special talent you have. If you ever wondered what to specialize in; this has got to be it. Evening and Bridal wear. I should see you in magazines real soon. I wish I could have been right beside you when you did this. I would like to have your strong skill. You must carry on. Congratulations on such a superb job.
