"Sew Bits" 2012
I absolutely loved this dress! It is modern and elegant, yet the mix of fabric swatches makes it more of a fun style for a unique type of bride. One of my favorite things about this wedding gown is that it is made of natural materials, like white hemp and silk dupioni. Alisa Otto is an impressive designer with a distinctive style. She prefers to use previously worn materials and tries to produce her designs with as little waste as possible. She started the company Beehart in 2008, which features bright, beautiful designs, made from vintage materials.
