I’ll confess when I asked Clare to take on the challenge…I knew what I was hoping she would do….and boy oh boy has she delivered! In spades!
Clare took her inspo from Meghan Markle and the final garment is a mash up of inspo of these two Givenchy numbers. Her wedding dress and a classically elegant piece worn at a formal royal engagement shortly after her wedding…
Her starting point was this 80’s charity shop find….more than a nod to the groom’s mother…this is a classic Princess Di inspired wedding gown typical of the era…
And here is the outcome in all it’s stunning and elegant simplicity….our first refashioners wedding dress! Eeeeeep!!
Thoroughly encourage you to read about this one. Clare also has some posts coming up about what she did with the left overs and a feature planned on ethical bridalwear. So follow if you have a particular interest in that! Head over here.
