Shepherdess bride marries in dress made from sheeps wool
I saw this in the paper today. I like the bodice, not so sure about the skirt.

Oh I love it! and the important point about the value and beauty of our home produced wool and yarns. Now I have to go and read about the woman found dead under a pile of clothes!???

That is amazing! The overall effect of the skirt looks good with the top for this particular dress I think.

I'm going to move this to the General forum so more members will see it. Only spinners/dyers come in here normally.

It certainly isn't for everyone, but I think it is beautiful. It is so unique and special. I think it is wonderful when the couple customizes their wedding to match their tastes and personalities.

I think it's creepy. Looks like one of those half human half animal things.

I'm sure it was meaningful for her and that is all that matters.
