This wedding ensemble is made from many of the tools and materials I use when dyeing fabrics. The body of the garment is sewn from muslin and embellished with string and silk ribbon embroidery. The skirt is also embellished with string and the tulip front and train is embellished with rubber gloves as are the tops of the sleeves. The bouquet is constructed from a large industrial paper spool and topped with a large gauze rose. The headpiece is also made of gauze and an old bridal veil.
