A Vintage Inspired Boho Wedding Dress for Festival Brides.
Updated: Mar 10, 2020
Once upon a time, I had a very rare (now sold) 1930s wedding dress, I called it 'Mirabelle'.
She was fragile, stunning and quite frankly, unlike anything I had come across before.
After I sold her, I wanted to somehow preserve her memory, so I set about designing THIS dress, Otillie.
She is my ONLY vintage inspired wedding dress in the Cambrdge Vintage Bridal collection and is based upon Mirabelle.
I fell in love with the panelled lace and long train, so I kept these elements but gave Otillie lace sleeves and a full length back zip, because the side buttons on Mirabelle were tricky.
Otillie is also white whereas Mirabelle was cream.
I loved working on this project and found someone who helped me make the actual dress (way beyond my clumsy stitching skills!) but it certainly reignited my passion for design - my 19 year-old self, a fashion student would be very proud.
Just a little look at how she hangs too - LOVELY!
