Such Great Heights

I will keep todays post short, and let the gorgeous photos do the talking. Just to give you some context, these were done as a collaboration between my friend who is an incredible makeup artist, and super talented Cape Town photographer Dear Heart.

I was very excited to have a wedding dress that I made included in the shoot, and am so stoked to have such amazing documentation of my work! I love the ethereal quality of these photos taken on  Signal Hill, and the juxtaposition between the natural scenery of Table Mountain and the view of my beloved city.

    Wow! That dress is amazing! I especially love the sheer lace back and the overall simplicity of the design. I found your site via handmadebycarolyn and her post on your Orla pattern. I’m hoping to try it out in the near future. I’ll post on IG when I do.

    The dress is gorgeous! Was that a stretch lace On the bodice and perhaps a nude lining on the back piece so she could wear a bra? Really pretty. Nice job!

      Thank you Rebecca 😊. It actually isn’t stretch lace, it was a very pricey Italian silk lace (hence the small amount used). I didn’t do a nude lining at the back, but should have down in retrospect. The idea of the bare back is great in theory but very impractical!

    What a beautiful dress!! I just made your Orla and love it. Everyone is so impressed with the dress. Thank you for the pattern. I’d love a pattern for this incredible dress, too! Haha!
