Fifth wife: Lulu who got him under her spell

Now you have met Lucy, Erin, Isla and Adele. And here we go my fifth wedding dress is called: Lulu.

This dress is pulled together in a week and that´s only because I made a mistake with the original dress (Erin) and that dress ended up for another model. But to be honest I think this dress looks great on this model. She has that right look for this dress. So maybe it was not that bad mistake at all. Or what you think?

I used six meters of wedding tulle and some chiffon to this dress. I found fabrics again from the fabric store Eurokangas. ( I didn´t meet Lady Gaga 🙂

We did one fitting in a phone with my model and one fitting before the shoots. I also did some sewing by hand on a photo shoot day. Phew.. The biggest thanks goes to my model. Thank you my dear model Laura for doing this to me. So after all we did it! Five unique wedding dresses!

I think this wedding dress would be great after the “official” wedding part… when the real party starts. And if you fall while dancing you´ll have a soft landing.

Fourth wife: Adele

The story of my fourth dress is colorful and this is how it goes.

Last year I did a dress called Odessa A. I still had that same fabric left from Odessa A and I thought it might look nice as a wedding dress. I had this idea of a one sleeve dress but it got too short and it didn´t fit well. So I cut the dress and..

started all over again. This time I added some lace to this dress and changed many things. But then again the dress wasn´t the way that I wanted it to be and so Linda mistake shirt was born. Now my fabric was gone but luckily I found some nice creamy colored polyester fabric from fabric store Eurokangas the lace was found from there too.

I guess this Adele wedding dress is one of my favorites from all the dresses I have ever made.

Third wife: cold as ice ISLA

Now you have met two out of five of my wedding dresses Lucy lace and Erin which I have designed and made. 

This third wedding dress ISLA got a start from two separate pieces of white satin. I found pieces from one of those fabric boxes from Eurokangas. I guess there was less than two meters of material but it was enough for this dress. Because I wanted to do a one shoulder wedding dress.

First I made some curves and foldings  for the upper part of the dress. I didn´t´use any patterns or a model I just used my imagination. I met my model when the dress was almost sewn together and we could do fittings. The dress was a bit too big for my model and so I ended up changing my model in the last minute. So this Isla dress was supposed to be for Emilia (and now I just mean for these photo shoots) who worked as model in my second wedding dress Erin 🙂 

I got a model for this Isla dress just five days before our photo shoots. Thank you so much Iina for doing it for me.

Second wife: Erin

You´ll find the story and some pictures from my first wedding dress from here. But now It´s time to continue with the story and present to you my second wedding dress and the wife number two.

I started doing this second wedding dress  for a model called Laura. I did all the fittings with Laura but after sewing the zipper dress got too small for Laura. My amateur seamstress mistake 🙂 Luckily I had this young girl Emilia who was able to fit in to that tiny dress. And thank God It fitted perfectly for Emilia.

I used two meters taffeta and some chiffon to this dress and of course lots of tulle. I found all the materials from the fabric store Eurokangas. I went trough many ideas how to decorate this dress. But I ended up using three brooches. They had that right kind of bling bling for this dress.

Here´s wife and the wedding dress number two: Erin

First wife: Lucy Lace

During my last years project I bought lots of fabrics which I didn´t use. So while going trough my old fabrics I found this nice flower lace. I remembered I bought it from one of those fabric boxes from fabric store Eurokangas. So I guess this fabric must have costed less than 20 euros.

I wanted to do a lace dress with long sleeves and a hood but there wasn´t enough fabric for those things. Then I found these lace pieces and I made a shoulder straps instead of sleeves. I decorated the straps with pearls.

Lace was a bit stretchy so I didn´t put a zipper on this dress but maybe I should have done it.. I guess this is the reason why dress is a bit too big for my model.

Instead of lining I used thin sand color chiffon.

But now this is how the story goes. While I was creating these wedding dresses I thought a lot people falling in love, getting married and then sometimes divorcing…  At the same time I was listening to music and then one song just hit me. Solitary man performed by Johny Cash.

So this is my story about a guy and his five wife´s. Here´s his wife number one: Lucy Lace
