The fairytale wedding dress – behind the scenes

It has been on my To Do list for some time to make a fairytale wedding dress from scratch, but I think I was subconsciously putting it off as I knew it would be a big project. However, I’m so happy and proud of the finished dress, I wish I had made it sooner! Hopefully I’ll have chance to make another one soon as this is an example of a fairytale boho-style wedding dress that can be made to order to your measurements.

As usual, I filmed the whole process and here’s the video:

Please get in touch with me at if you’d like your version of this handmade bohemian fairytale wedding dress. Take a look at the listing on my Etsy shop, ThreadsOfAFairytale for more information about this particular dress, and I’ll update this post tomorrow with a link to the listing for the made-to-order version!

And before I go; a quick apology for not updating here much recently – I’ve been very busy over on my YouTube channel with editing, posting and filming a video every day for Vlogmas! Two weeks exactly till Christmas!

How I made the woodland fairy wedding dress

Hello! This is just a quick news update to tell you about my latest post I’ve written over on my blog, When I Grow Up. Hopefully it will be a little less controversial than the Oshun one! It’s simply a post about how I made the dress as several people I met at the New Forest Fairy Festival asked me how I make my fairy dresses. Hopefully it will be helpful if you’re thinking about making your own if you have a special event to go to; or interesting if you’re thinking about purchasing the woodland dress from the Threads of a Fairytale Etsy shop.

I can’t wait to get sewing again! Unfortunately I’ve been busy stuck in a vortex of housework and admin since getting back from holiday!

It was actually a New Year’s goal last year to work on my photography for Oshun; which I managed to do a bit, but not nearly as much as I wanted to. So I’m continuing this year and have spent today re-editing some photos I took of the 1920’s flapper vintage style wedding dress (which is actually a skirt and top outfit) I have for sale.
