I was in charge of designing 4 different dresses for my brother’s wedding. We wanted a dress we’d like to wear after the event! My mom sewed 3 of them and I sewed mine. It took about 8hrs total (a lot of topstitching as I use that as a decorative finisher). Gorgeous fabric, but probably not the best for a hot Colorado May wedding… :)
Vogue shirt pattern adjusted for the bodice.
Polyester/nylon black with red flower fabric, designed by Joann’s Fabrics.
Black polyester/cotton thread.
Measurements for skirt (from drop waist to hem).
Behind the seams with Marina von Koenig Part 2
