Wedding Gown Worn Two Ways
I made this wedding dress for my daughter to be used at a church wedding with a semi-formal pig roast reception at my home. The removable train was made from my wedding dress. I added eight yards of beaded/sequined Alencon lace to the border of the bottom of the train to give it depth and also created the decorations and the centers of the back and front. Additionally, I added the Alencon lace to the top of where the train was attached to the dress underneath. The underdress was made of shantung silk with a halter top. The Alencon lace was added to mimic the bottom of the dress. Once the bottom of the dress was removed, there was a surprise of purple tulle found under the short shantung dress. This was one fun dress to make.
