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.

Thank you Dorit for taking these amazing pictures with super speed. Thank you Rebecca, Emilia, Iina, Anna and Laura for being such a great and pretty models. Waiting to celebrate with you! Thank you Mikko for your help at the photo shoot. I own you a beer or a two..

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.

Unique wedding dresses pictures are ready!!!

In February I received an email from a bride who was asking me to create an unique wedding dress for their wedding after party or the day after the wedding for a brunch. I told her that I could designed it but maybe it would be better to finish the dress with professional seamstress. And so we did.. but…

Designing dresses means to me also trying things with fabrics. So while designing that after party dress I tried many things with fabric. And so I ended up trying ideas of different kinds of wedding dresses.. And made them ready.

Now I am just so excited! I have seen the pictures from my five unique wedding dresses what I have created during this year. (You can go to my old blog: I Love dresses to read more about making of these unique wedding dresses).

We had a wedding dress photo shoot session in June and now the pictures are ready. So I will share those photos with you in a day or two. I still need to go them trough and choose the best ones.

Last year, when I started designing and creating unique dresses I had this secret dream of my own about doing a  long wedding dress. Now I have done it.

But here´s a one picture (as a sneak peak) from one of my new models. She is Laura,  a Bride to be, and she writes a blog: Palomiehen morsian ps. this dress is not Laura´s real wedding dress 🙂

This dress is called: Lulu, Picture: Dorit Salutskij
