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 helen@threadsofafairytale.com 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!

Pure silk circus fairy outfit reduced by £18!

Silk circus fairy costume

Apart from the net layer in the skirt, this outfit is all pure silk. I’m making way for a lot of new stock, so I’ve reduced this fairy costume by £18! It’s never too early to start thinking about your festival outfits, and this one would be perfect! For more photos and details, take a look at Oshun Creations on Etsy.

Making a black & red special occasion dress. (Perfect for Valentine’s Day next week!)

Hello! I hope you’re all keeping warm! If you’d like to see the process of how I made the black and red dress mentioned in my last post, then please take a look at this sewing video. It shows the process of how to make the dress using the black materials and the roses embroidery; how I recycled vintage fabrics to make a new eco-friendly and sustainable item of clothing. It would be a stunning black wedding dress or if you if you’d like to add a touch of romantic gothic to a special occasion!

I’ll be adding a listing to the shop soon which will talk you through the process of how to order a custom handmade dress like this one.
