Los Angeles, Cal...
Naturally, I had to make my dress even though husband and I decided on a short engagement. (OK, I guess it was mostly me that wanted to get married sooner than later and not spend a year + planning a wedding! We had been together for over 5 years and I just so looked forward to being married to my man.)
The lace is fabric I have been toting around for years originally intended for a maid of honor dress. The pattern is from 1948; the pattern is for a sundress but I loved the simplicity and square neckline so much I figured it would be just fine for a summer wedding dress. It turned out relatively easy and stress-free to make—thankfully!
The opening has hook and eye closures decorated with vintage foil-back glass flower buttons. The under dress has a tiered skirt and is made from the palest pink cotton batiste with nude lace straps. The petticoat/crinoline is vintage.
FYI: shoes are “Anita” from Remix Vintage Shoes!
