Wedding Gown Worn Two Ways

Full length gown in front of the house

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.
