two Elisalex variations

I’m making my wedding dress and have made 2 possibilities, both based on the Elisalex (By Hand London) bodice.

Navy guipure sequinned lace, lined with latte silk satin (both from Tessuti) with a pencil skirt. I think it needs a wider (and not so tight) belt.

Silk taffeta, orange shot with pink, screen printed Bush Apples by Babbarra DesignsBabbarra Designs Maningrida (from Nomad Art, Darwin). Bodice lined with red lawn and a circle skirt finished with horsehair braid. I’m thinking a sash self-belt, not so wide and tied at the back

For both bodices I needed to do a FBA, made the necklines lower and the back narrower.

What do you think, wear both, one for the ceremony, one for the dancing?

  3. Both dresses are beautiful! So hard to choose just one… I say, do the ceremony in the lace one, fiery dancing in the bush apples! That fabric is so gorgeous, I would gladly give up a leg for it 😉
    Last but not least; CONGRATULATIONS 😀
