My Embroidered Wedding Dress
The largest stitching project I have ever embarked on was an incredibly personal one. In May 2023 I embroidered my own wedding dress. Whilst I wrote an article for World of Interiors describing the whole process and meaning behind the dress, I wanted there to be a spot in my Journal dedicated to this labour of love.
The base dress was a second hand Laura Ashley dress from 1970s which I bought from a vintage dress seller who works in the same studios building as me. Whilst I made some minor adjustments to shorten the dress and cut away some of the lace, the main work was the embroidery.
Altogether there are about 30 different flowers and motifs stitched across the dress, each with their own particular meaning. You can read all about the dress itself and the stitching process in the article linked below. Or if you like me are more into pictures, then here is a scrap book of photos of my favourite outfit and the best day of my life so far.The World of Interiors article
