Guipure Lace wedding Gown
For this autumn wedding in Vermont the bride chose a Guipure lace with a leaf pattern. I handpieced the lace so there are no visible seams to interrupt the pattern of the lace. The lace is quite heavy. We considered a red underdress to highlight the leaves, but instead chose a blush pink charmeuse with a red ribbon at her waist
