I found another option.
And I love it.
BUT I still love my original plan, and I can’t think how to choose, or try and incorporate the two or something.
This is the shape of dress I want, but with a sweetheart neckline and bell sleeves (and in white). I’ve fallen in love with the lace. Possibly I’d add a lilac ribbon around the waist, since that’s my colour scheme.
But my original plan was that shape but in a silky smooth satin, with embroidered celtic knots around the neckline, waist, hem and cuffs in pale lilac.
Celtic knots are important to me, they’re a nod to my heritage, and the infinite nature of them strikes me as very fitting for a celebration of love. But the lace…
What can I do???
