8" French Fashion Bride

This is the bridal dress I have been working on for my little 8" French Fashion doll. I have been sewing for her for a little while but have not taken any pictures of the gowns yet. I will, I promise. It's been a bit hectic around here of late, and I've been more then tired at night. Things will slow down a bit soon I hope.
  Anyway, this bridal gown has several layers, starting with the skirt of silk brocade. There is a many tiered ruffle layer at the end of the train, making it long and full. Then there is a gorgeous beaded net layer ending in a tucked scalloped full train. The bodice of the same brocade as the skirt bottom layer, is  decorated with beaded embroidery motifs . Another smaller bustle like twin poofs adorn the back of the bodice giving it extra flare.
   The veil is yet another beaded design on net veiling and crowned on top with ribbon bows and beaded motifs. She carries a bouquet  of pale pink and off white roses with a touch of other flowers to add interest. Ribbon streamers tied with roses complete the vintage look befitting a fashion princess.
