Wow how quickly the past few months have gone! Since my last blog I have had the pleasure of meeting many brides-to-be at the Perth Bridal Fair & eBridal Expo. The feedback I have had has been extremely motivating and I look forward to working with my new brides on their dream wedding dresses.
Crochet Creative Wedding Dress
In April I spent some time in Zimbabwe, where I met with Lydia from Knitters of Makanya. Lydia manages a group of ladies in her rural community who have perfected the art of crochet over the past 35 years. The crochet work financially uplifts many families in the community and I am delighted to be networking with them for some of my Crochet Bridal creations. If your preference was to include crochet in your wedding dress, it could be either fully or partially incorporated, whichever best suits your design & theme. Featured here is a sample of a very simple crochet wedding dress with a changeable waist sash. The bodice lining has been omitted purely to show off the stitch design. You can choose any colour of lining to go with a wide range of different fabrics.
Wedding dresses to help the environment
Alongside the crochet I like to offer the option of bio-degradable & eco-friendly fabrics including milk, banana & bamboo. These are sustainable, breathable & have so many other great properties that I will explore with you in another blog soon. The milk fabric is especially soft & silky on the skin and is not only breathable but captures the moisture too, so it is ideal for a destination wedding with tropical heat!
The joy of having a JRW bespoke gown is you can be as creative as you want to be! Designing a gown that reflects all that you want it to, will give your special day that unique look, feeling & excitement that every bride is after. Till next time!
