Eco-friendly Custom Wedding Dress

Last winter Sasha commissioned me for an unusual project.  She wanted to create her wedding dress using the fabric from some vintage lace curtains that hung in her mother’s childhood bedroom!  She also wanted to use natural fibers in the other parts of the dress.  I sourced some vintage silk haibotai for the lining and we used a hemp/silk blend for the fabric behind the lace.  The top fabric was beautiful silk chiffon to lend a light floating quality to the dress.  I couldn’t be happier with the result!  So beautiful!
