Made in 2012, this was the first wedding dress I ever made.

Having an unqualified mindset towards my skillset, I initially declined the request to make this dress. However, through her persistent efforts, my friend convinced me to go forward with it.

Although my mother had taught me to sew when I was young, and was studying Fashion Design (at the time), this was the first experience I had in creating a garment for someone else.

The bride came to me with her ideas, and I did my very best to achieve them.

We had fun doing this project together; finalising ideas, fabric shopping, various fittings, and finally seeing her walk down the aisle in the dress of her dreams that I was able to help create.
