Old unpublished wedding designs

I have a facebook album of wedding dress designs I've done, however by now I'm not a fan of most of them, but I do have a couple I haven't posted on here yet that I like. I have quite a few new ones I'll post, but they need to be cleaned up etc before I publish them. If you're not familiar with my wedding dress philosophy review this entry.

I did this design years ago as a sari-style wedding dress. The idea would be that the stripes would be in silver or at least a satin and weave variation from the rest. Looking at it now I'd want to actually have a pallu in the back.

The left has kimono sleeves with a gusset and the design on it is in bugle beads and others in a sort of ombre skyline type design.

The right is a take on this dress worn by Olga Chekhova (sitting with Hitler). It'd be in white with super heavy embroidery and glitz at the hem and waist and sleeves (two options shown).

Left is an alteration of a summer dress I found in Vogue w/ glitz a the bottom (I love glitz, but I guess you don't have to have it). I imagine it in a natural white Georgette.

Right has kimono sleeves with gussets and is covered in bugle beaded scallops, probably in champagne or even a really light gold. It has an option to be split to reveal accordion pleated silk.


  1. Thank you for posting these! I love the dress with kimono sleeves.

  2. I'm sure you don't mind, but I've been loosely following your blog for a few months now! I love your rendering style in thus entry. I think there's something very expressive about a rendering that has defined lines but keeps the spirit of a sketch.

    Keep up the good blogging!
