Remaking a vintage wedding dress

This very cute dress was found in an op shop about 15 years ago by a lady who brought it into my       studio, hoping it could be remade. 
I always love a challenge and the thought of remaking such a gorgeous dress was something I couldn't resist. 
The dress is made from silk chiffon, silk organza and satin, with very cute 
Flowers stitched to the bodice and skirt.
The new version of the original dress, 
Just gorgeous :) 

I love the fullness this dress has with the freshness from the fabric
Compared to the flat worn look of the original dress. 

The flowers really finish this dress off beautifully.
