Instead I thought I'd show you a couple of designs I'm thinking of making as samples:
Given the recent weather, this top one might be a good idea for a winter wedding as it has long sleeves. I intend it to be a floppy dress, made of silk crepe. It could also work well made with an all over lace as well. I see it as quite a sophisticated dress suitable for multiple venues.
This one I've had in my files for ages, but not got around to making yet. Its quite a traditional look, and again has little cap sleeves which I like. I love the back. I see it as a church wedding dress, very feminine. A 'proper' wedding dress, but simple. Those are big pleats on the skirt, not gathers. The flower/corsage details are tbc and won't be worked out until its manufactured, but something can go in these areas of the design, I'm open to suggestion...
On re-reading the top of this post, I notice it looks like my sister may have met with an horrific accident in the snow - she is well and intact, but decided not to travel! ;)
