Silk Wedding Gown – Moira


Moira is radiant in her elegant bridal gown. Moira’s mother-in-law, Glenda created her stunningly simple wedding gown from fabrics that they got from Britex fabrics. She started with a Vogue pattern but eventually ended up altering it almost completely, including adding a train. She made this delectably graceful confection out of silk satin, silk organza, silk crinkle chiffon, French lace on the bodice, rayon lining, hand sewn crystals, and a rhinestone banding on the veil….every bride should be so lucky to have such a talented and giving mother-in-law!

Bridal Veils – Alençon Lace

June will arrive more quickly than we expect, and with June come the brides! Using Vogue pattern V8569, a handful of gossamer tulle, and a couple of yards of lovely lace from Britex Fabrics you can make your own romantic, heirloom wedding veil. This imported French 4 1/2″ wide ivory Alençon lace, with a corded rose and leaf motif, and a double-scalloped border can easily be cut through the center to make trim, and would be luxuriously stunning as veil edging.
