Description


My beautiful younger daughter decided her & Natahlia's dad were going to get married..not a big deal you say?..hehe but the big day was in a month's time & 20 days (it turned out) before the birth of their 2nd daughter!
She didn't want anything fancy but I said well you have to have a wedding dress which I will make!
I live in Australia & they live in NZ so it was fun choosing the fabric & pattern & making a dress that needed to fit an expanding tum without the model to try it on!
The pattern I chose was not a maternity style but I adapted the gathering of the skirt to a box pleat that fell over her bump fabulously & replaced the zip with a lace up back & modesty panel.
She was thrilled with the result & so was I ..she did indeed look so very very beautiful.

Just beautiful <3
It could not have fitted nor looked more perfect don't you agree? xx
Of course i made her turn around for a pic of the back ;)
The back lace up & modesty panel
all finished let's hope it fits!
