The 2010 bridal season has crept up on 2009, and I have started some new custom dresses. If they're all like Tasha's, it's going to be a smashing year. This very special dress is embroidered all over with 100-year-old guipure lace. This lace is all made from small pieces from my collection, cut apart and reassembled as a collage of blossoms. They've been hand-tinted and tea dyed to harmonize in color. The bodice will be fully covered in lace, tapering down the skirt in a scatter pattern to the hem. More pictures as it comes together.
