Hi! This is my first and probably most important (to me) post!
I am going to get married to the most wonderful man next June (2012) and really want to make my own wedding dress. Partly because we’re on a budget; partly because even if we had more money, I don’t think I could bring myself to spend thousands of dollars on a dress; and mostly because I’d love to walk down the aisle in something I worked so hard on that will mean much more to me than something I bought.
Anyway. My issue is that I really want something similar to Olivia Wilde’s 2008 Reem Acra dress and I don’t know where to start. If anyone can give any sort of advice, I’d really appreciate it!
(btw: I’m also not very skilled in adding links/images to this, so apologies if you can’t see the picture. Google searching it is really easy though…)
Wedding dress has chiffon ruching over bridal silk on a v-neck halter. It needs to hold…
I would spread the hemline wider then the neckline though as it doesn’t look too gather…
Hi, boning would be good. You have a zip on the side so you only need boning in the sea…
Usually the facings need to be sewn together before the facing is sewn onto the garment…
There’s a burda member here that does that. Her profile is called sassy. it’s a picture…
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
