Don’t worry I think this will be the final blog post telling you all about the wedding… well that’s what Mothers of the Bride do isn’t it!
So here’s a round up of the bits.
This was a great easy pattern for a great range of veils. I made the version as shown in the main pic using the same tulle as the dress.
The veil was then gathered & stitched to a comb which had be wound with ribbon.
With both me & the bride being hairdressers we knew the hair had to be right, & yes I was the hairdresser on the day!
My daughter had looked at hair vines so with a bit of online research & lots of looking at pics I went & bought wire & beads.
Cutting sections of wire approx 15cm long I threaded on a bead, folded in half & twisted for about 1cm before adding another bead bending another section then twisting again.
Every bride needs somewhere to keep her lippy💄so I made a little purse in the dress fabric, with a little wadding, & lined in the fabric of the grooms tie, using a purse frame. It’s a bit fiddly glueing the fabric into the frame but apart from that a nice little make for a gift.
I made one of these for the first time at a class at Social Fabric but unfortunately they don’t seem to have any planned at mo. There are lots of fantastic tutorial online & I find U Handbag great for supplies & tutorials .
Ties & pocket squares.
We couldn’t forget the groom & his men. Silk ties were made using a downloaded skinny tie pattern from proper Fit Clothing.
My daughter decided it would be nice for her niece to carry something she could play with & keep so a rag doll in a dress matching hers seemed perfect.
Made using a vintage doll pattern it was nearly as big as she was!
