Dyed Gown with Lace

Original Gown

This original gown was the bride’s mother’s gown and it’s made of white cotton lace and knit. The dress fit the bride perfectly but she didn’t care for the color.

Lace Detail

I researched dying the gown and she chose a light gray. I took the lace off the gown before I sent it to New York for the dying. The dying process took 4 weeks and then I proceeded to hand sew the white lace onto the gray gown according to the bride’s wishes.

Back of Gown

I had excess lace leftover, so the bride asked me to make little veils with the lace applied for her three flower girls. It was a fun project and process as I worked closely with the bride to achieve the exact design vision she had in mind.
