Drop Dead Gorgeous

This is an alternative wedding dress I made recently. The main fabric (the black) is 60% cotton, 40% bamboo, and the lace, mesh, and silk circles on the skirt are mostly upcycled fabrics. The lace up front ensures a snug fit. The scales on the skirt were quite a project. I didn't actually count them but I think there are about 550 scales on the dress. It's actually a very lightweight dress considering the volume of the skirt.

I sent the dress down to Ken Gehring for a workshop he was doing, and had the extreme privilege of having the dress shot by Ken and several other very talented folks. I was lucky to have the beautiful model Melissa Bryant wear it. The photos they came up with are drop-dead gorgeous!! So without further ado, here are some of the fabulous photos they got during the workshop.
