DIY Wedding Dress

Bed sheets arn’t just good for ghost costumes, you know.

Let’s take some inspiration from Kristen and Josh who had a wedding full of handmade things from the people they love.

Her wedding dress started off like this:

And after some rather skilled sewing… 

A stitch in time...

A stitch in time...

Turned into this gorgeous creation!

Beautiful!

Beautiful!

Who says you need to spend a fortune on a dress? All you need is a bed sheet (if you’re feeling fancy, go poking around in a vintage shop for a lovely antique one) and some mad stitch-ery skills and voila!  Thrifty, original and gorgeous.

Multi-Coloured FIRE!

Think multicoloured flames are only to be found in Hogwarts? Think again, you little wizarding wannabes!
