"Wedded Bliss" - made from a wedding dress

"Wedded Bliss", 58" x 58", July 2008

Five years ago (before I started blogging) Brandi got married. Because the wedding was close to Valentine's Day, and because her dress had red accents, her bridesmaids wore red. Later that year she contacted me about making a large wall hanging using her wedding dress, a bridesmaid's dress, and the flower girl's dress.

The wedding dress had lots of great beading which I was able to use in the quilt. It also had a lace-up corset in the back which Brandi wanted in the center.

The six hearts were paper pieced, each with different embellishments from the dresses.

A detail photo of the beading from the wedding dress.

Happy Valentine's Day! And Happy Anniversary Brandi!

Can you tell me what dress this is? Who made the dress?

I had this same wedding dress, only to discover 10 years down the road that I have someone else's wedding dress preserved!! I'm desperate to find out the maker of the dress as I don't have a receipt for my gown anymore. Please help if you can!

Michele - I'm afraid I don't know who made the dress originally. If e-mail me directly (so that I can reply by e-mail) I might be able to contact someone I know who is in the wedding dress making business and she might be able to help you.
