This is a picture of a wedding dress a friend made that I took 3 months to decorate with tatting. The same beaded edging is all the way around the dress skirt and train and all around the cathedral length veil. The bodice has appliqued tatted motifs all over it. The fabric of the dress was watermarked silk.
It was made in 1988, modelled by my (then) 16 year old niece, Paula.
Does it remind you, similarly, of a recent royal wedding dress?
The old designs never date do they?
Sorry about the quality of the picture, but there were no digitals in those days! LOL!!!
