Alex’s wedding (and getting by with a little help from her friends)

Here’s a feel-good story for sewing beginners. The bride pictured
here is our gorgeous customer Alex. She’s been attending sewing classes
with Bernadette Doherty
for only 3 years and when Alex became engaged a year ago, she knew
instantly that she wanted to make her own wedding dress. Alex chose a
lovely beaded tulle lace from our Surry Hills store and made it up during classes using a combination of different patterns from Bernadette’s collection.

The other lovely part to this story? The bridesmaid’s dresses (variations of New Look 6699, made in our Charcoal silk satin and matching georgette) were made by her sewing class buddies Libby and Cathy.

The perfect sewing story of patience, love and friendship (and for more images of Alex’s wedding and dresses, check out #alexandleontietheknot on Instagram).
