Bride Doll at Lilydale Show

This is the bride doll that I entered in the Lilydale Show last week, in the section "Item or Garment decorated with handmade lace or tatting". She won first prize.

Her veil and her underskirt were edged with "hen and chicks", the veil also being highlighted with seed pearls. The bodice was covered in one of the background patterns from the DMC book of tatting, and the hem of the dress was decorated with Mark Myers' Pointed and Scalloped Edging. When I lay the edging against the white dress, it "disappeared", so when sewing it on, I highlighted the outer edge picots with seed pearls, which gave the pattern more definition. I was going to tat the flowers for her bouquet too, but I ran out of time, so she had to have silk ones!

The tiara was two rows of rings and chain, the rings of the two rows joined by swarovski crystals. The rings all had silver seed beads instead of picots.

All the tatting on the dress and veil was done in 80, and the tiara in 40. The dress itself was organza over taffeta.
