Those of you who follow us on Pinterest will know that I have a particular penchant for wedding dresses with cardis – I know, but I think they can look gorgeous, not to mention how practical they can be.  Let’s not forget the weather isn’t always like it has been this past week…

I’ve got a whole Pinterest board on wedding dresses with cardis so do check it out.

And you may also know that here at Ever After – A Dartmoor Wedding we like a bit of eco-chic.   So I’m thrilled with my latest discovery of a fabulous British company specialising in knitted wedding shrugs and cardis that are so beautiful you will definitely want to take a closer look.

They do some gorgeous gossamer-thin shrugs like this:

or something more substantial like this:

As Makepiece themselves say, “Our sheer shrugs are perfect for summer weddings – for the evening, when the sun goes in or for cooler churches and registry offices. They’re also a perfect cover up for bare arms – without spoiling the line and look of your dress.”  Perfect indeed.

And it gets better, they knit from wool from their own sheep – what could be more eco or more chic than that…?

I’m hoping to get some more details from the lovely ladies at Makepiece about their business and their philosophy so keep an eye open for some more gorgeous knits and info here.

Do be sure to head over to our Pinterest board and check out some more wedding dress and cardi combos…
