Billy Idol Is Escorting Her Down The Aisle

Hello friends..... well after many hours of searching for the right materials and playing with design and placement, she is finished.
May I introduce my newest and most labor intensive Couture Apron.
It's a great day for a White Wedding!
White Wedding
The inspiration for this beauty was the 1982 hit song White Wedding by rocker Billy Idol.

This art apron has all the features of a bridal gown. Pearl buttons, faux diamonds, lace, embroidery, ruching, ruffles and gathers and layers upon layers of lushness. 
 She even has a bridal veil!
Feminine ruching and pearls. 
 Very unique vintage rhinestone flower pin.
Layers of lace, embroidery and loveliness...all thrifted of course. Who says you can't get married on a budget! 
 Detachable handmade lace rose Brooch with faux diamond center.
Of course she has to have a hidden pocket...hey a gal has to have a place for her secrets.
Well there she is and she is already on display in my Etsy shop.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
I'm joining in with Kathleen at White Wednesday and Everything Etsy's "I Made It" Thursday and 'Follow Friday' with Java and Never Growing Old. Come meet more great bloggers.

Amazing work here Janet! It reminds me of Cinderellas ball gown with the criss crosses. But of course in white! :)
