During the summer of 2014 my friends Sarah and Jonah married each other in a beautiful ceremony overlooking Lake Merritt in Oakland. I never ended up posting about the dress I made for myself on here, and only have a few low quality pictures from the event so I had the amazing Drew Beck take some new photos to show you.
If the look seems familiar, that’s because it kind of is. I made a very similar dress a year before for my friend Martha’s wedding, just in a bright yellow color (which you can see here). The neckline of the dress is different, but the shoes, the petticoat and the necklace are all the same.
I intentionally left the skirt of the dress a bit on the short side so that the petticoat would show.
Pockets of course. A girl needs somewhere to put her hands!
The back. I actually have a bra I didn’t wear very much that’s just about this color purple, so I ended up adjusting the straps to fit just this dress.
…and a silly one of course!
This may not be the least time you see this look as its pretty much the most fun thing I have ever worn! Maybe I’ll go green next time…
