guest blogger elisabeth: the dress


I don’t know if you remember (or care to remember) the few posts I did about wedding dresses last summer. Well two weeks ago I sat down with Daniel Faucher, an unbelievably talented couturier whose dress-making studio just so happens to be down the hallway, five (or six?) doors away from my letterpress studio.

And we have a dress. I think. In swiss dot and other white-on-white cotton voiles, with a bit of other things mixed in. Hopefully not too much overall, more about texture and shape than embellishment. It will ultimately be a hybrid of the two above.

And! The best part is that the bottom tiers will be a separate skirt. Which means that after we have said our vows and eaten our dinner, I can dance in a short dress and sparkly heels and feel like I’m at a kickass party.


  1. that dress makes me wish that I could 1. get married soon and 2. get enough money to afford that dress and 3. actually MEET the guy I’m marrying 🙂

  2. Elisabeth, I love the idea of a convertible dress. Very smart. Before you’re blogging time expires, I’ve tagged you.
    Tag you’re it! I’ve tagged you in the blogging game, here’s how it works:

    ~ blog seven things about yourself
    ~ link the person that tagged you in the blog entry
    ~ “tag” several other fave bloggers at the end of your post!

  3. correct me if i’m wrong… the dress on the right is Chanel? if so… that is MY FAVORITE dress, and the one i would definitely love to wear for my own wedding someday!
