The designer of Sylvia Jeffreys’ wedding gown has revealed intricate details behind the making of the extravagant bridal attire.

The tiered white dress featured a plunging neckline, custom-made corsetry, 15 metres of lace, 10 metres of Italian fine silk double organza and a six metre silk train.
After more than 200 hours in the making, the elegant gown was finished off with 29 silk buttons, micro sequins and feathered yarns.
The world-renowned designer, from Victoria’s Ballarat, sourced fine dentelle de Calais lace from a lace mill – used to design France’s finest haute couture.
‘We began the design process six months ago and worked closely together to create the perfect dress for her special day,’ Ms Vallance told Nine Style.
‘We are both really pleased with the outcome, I feel honoured to have designed the dress for such a special friend, she couldn’t have looked more beautiful.’
While Ms Vallance’s ready-to-wear dresses retail for as much as AU$1,249, it is not known how much her bespoke gown for Sylvia cost.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted the designer’s representatives for comment.
