Another one of my favourites…every once in a while a simply beautiful dress (and absolutely gorgeous bride to wear it) finds its way through the Maryke Atelier.

The ruched pleats on the bodice were each individually folded, pinned & stitched down by hand. Delicate lace was used for the stunning low back & shoulder strap detail. A pleated skirt complimented her petite frame. The belt detail in the waist tied through a vintage clip and the ends were finished off with some of the lace appliqué’s.

It was extra special making Leah’s dress for because I made her sister’s wedding dress a couple of years before.
