Wedding Wednesday #10

Jessica Holmes

I must apologise as it has been a while since we've visited my Wedding Dress Wednesday shots. In light of this fact I thought a special dress should be shown. This is one of the first wedding dresses I ever made, it was part of my final exhibition when I graduated from London College of Fashion. The inspiration for its creation came from a Shakespeare sonnet centred on love and it began my own love affair with wedding dresses and all that they entail.

The style of the dress itself has a touch of the Victorian to it, what with the delicate button fastening at its centre back and subtle lace applique. However, the overall look is significantly 1920s/30s, highlighted in a bias cut panel at the front for a flattering fit.

A few modern touches - such as the wired hem and green thread that runs along it - ensures this dress remains firmly in the present. And don't miss the surprise addition of our dog, Willow, joining me in the mirror!

Wedding Wednesday #4

The wedding dress I am wearing today is a shorter style for the more risqué bride. This applies not only to the length but also the bodice, which is translucent chiffon apart from some strategically placed coloured lace… Definitely not one for the faint-hearted, though I must confess, I soon forgot how revealing it was and in actuality the effect was quite subtle!

I would love to re-create this dress as a full-length version were I to make it again, with the skirt in a softer fabric for a more romantic feel. Anyone who fancies something similar for their wedding dress do get in touch and I will give you a fabulous discount for the thrill of letting me make it again!
