Isabella Vestito - The Journey So Far

So after watching the twilight movies i completely fell in love with bella's wedding dress. 
for the record i am NOT a dressmaker. i just do this as a hobbie. So after a long deliberation. i decided to buy some material and give it ago.

6 metres of ivory satin
7 metres of underlining
3 metres of bridal loop
2 sq metres of lace
187 satin half moon bridal buttons

i knew from the off this dress was going to be expensive and hard work.

i started by downloading several images of the dress to see how it is stitched together

here is my journey so far with the dress.

here some shots of what i got up to (&& the mess) involved creating this dress

i will be posting a full blog post when she is complete
