Marie is cutting out lace to be applied onto the illusion bust area of a beautiful wedding dress. This creates a more modest look which is preferred by the bride. The additional lace works well with the overall look of the dress and has been taken off the hem area when the dress was shortened. @brideandalter we restyle necklines and create modesty panels to make sure you feel at ease on your wedding day. #beautifulbride #bridetobe #weddingdress #modestypanel #neckline #londonwedding #bride #londonbride #individualbride #weddingdressalterations #illusiondress #bridalalterations #professionalservices #dressmaking #londonseamstress #motherofbridedress #weddinglook #familyaffair #capturedinphotos ...
