The talented Rebecca from Alaska recently made a bridal gown for her son and daughter-in-law’s wedding that took place at Anini Beach in Kauai. She made this romantically graceful wedding gown of delicate lace fabric bought from Britex in the 1980s and 4-ply silk charmeuse, and then trimmed the veil and created the sash from pale ballet pink silk satin ribbon bought from Britex Fabrics’ online store. She said, “An interesting tidbit….in order to apply the narrow 1/8 inch satin ribbon to the diamond white shimmer veiling, I used adding machine tape to stabilize the tulle and back it for stitching. I then carefully stitched with my machine, taking care to gently move the fabric and paper together, and at the curves, carefully tore the paper and again inserted to allow perfect matched lines for end of veil, which also was much longer than the chapel length train of gown. The most time consuming aspect of it was carefully tearing the paper away from the stitching without disturbing the integrity of the stitch, but with care, everything turned out fine. The silk satin ribbon was amazing to use, and had the best quality, being a double sided variety I chose for gown and veiling.”
