This is one of the first “dresses” I’ve ever made. A friend of mine, Bekah from BekahBea Bridal, made a similar skirt as part of her bridal collection and I was instantly inspired. Her skirt is way more traditional bridal than mine is, with a lovely round, even hem and twelve luscious layers of white netting.
Of course, when I got ready to make my own, I wanted it to be different from hers but still interesting on its own. My skirt has eight layers of netting and was tea-stained to give it a vintage flair. Furthermore, I decided to distress the hem, which instantly gave me a shipwrecked Ariel sort of vibe (and you know that I am always on the hunt for a good Disney princess-inspired look). I finished the style with a twisted-neck bodice that reminds me of something Daenerys would wear and that’s always a good thing.
Even better? My friend Connie wore the skirt as part of her shoot in Cloudland Canyon. She decided to pair the skirt with a hand-crocheted halter top that ended up being the perfect compliment for someone who didn’t want to bare quite as much skin as the original bodice.
