I didn’t wear much jewlery, actually, just earrings and a brooch, which you can sort of make out in the picture. And actually it wasn’t really a brooch, but a sweater closure (can’t think of the word) that I glued together and safety-pinned to the dress. 🙂

I wanted something like your dress, but b/c i’m in the Czech Republic I would have had to order internationally and then deal with it if it didn’t fit. I ended up having a seamstress make it.

Your dress is lovely, btw.

Most people I show say it’s very Audrey Hepburn. I had it made by my best friend. The bow was tied very quickly, and it will be much neater on the day of the wedding.

This was mine. It started out with a more plunging neck and no sleeves. I bought two of the dress and had a dressmaker widen the neckline (which raised the front a bit) and use the fabric from the spare one to make the sleeves. The basic dress was £50 from Amazon!

I love this thread! This is the style I’ll be looking for 🙂 Have you guys heard of Dolly Coutour? I’m thinking of checking them out in person.
