I recreated so many vintage wedding dresses to wear around my wedding and honeymoon and this one was one of my favorites!
Look at all these ruffles!!!
It feels oh, so, Marie Antoinette.
Look at those sleeves!
And that lace collar?!
I have a fairly certain idea what's going to happen to those sleeves.
But first, DYE!
The dress went into a bath of emerald dye and came out a lovely lightish aqua color. This dress was fully polyester and I didn't use a poly-friendly dye just to get a more subtle shade.
I grabbed my seam ripper and got to town around those sleeves... The used to be attached...
I was OBSESSED with how the tiered ruffles turned out and just couldn't touch the skirt portion of the dress. I mean, hello new lewk!
I'm obsessed with the way fuschia/hot pink goes with this aqua color, so I took some remnant tulle (YES, THAT'S TULLE AROUND MY WAIST!) and got myself a gorg rose to pose in front of this super chic door.
Greens on yellows on pinks, oh my!
When in such serious ruffles like these, you must find a hammock and swing!
This is most definitely on my favorites list. I couldn't have been more excited with how this turned out!
