Dress the Bride Competition – Barbara Langley’s Entry

June 3rd, 2010

A modern classic!

We absolutely loved the antique, but modern look of Barbara Langley’s wedding dress she entered in our ‘Dress the Bride’ competition – definitely a modern classic that we would be happy to wear!

“I love to go to miniature fairs to look for old lace and other items I may be able to use in my future projects.  Looking in my boxes and boxes of material when starting this wedding dress, I came across three old lace collars.  I played around with the lace, draping them over the doll to see what would happen, and then I started to sew – I didn’t use a pattern at all!

The gem on the front of the dress comes from an old wedding dress from a fair at Newark.   I found the buckle on the back of the skirt in one of my boxes of odds and ends!  The necklace is made from modern gems which I bought by the metre at a miniature fair in York.

I had nothing in mind for the style of the dress, it just took shape as I sewed!  I think you would call it old modern!”
