London, United K...
My mother asked me to make this dress for her wedding, and it came out beautifully. In all honesty, the instructions weren’t great and much deciphering went into this project, and I’m very glad that I started it well in advance. I made two variations to the pattern which were 1) I didn’t add the fabric flower to the waistband and 2) I added a train to the dress to give it a more bridal feel. To the end of the train I sewed on a string of ribbon that had little roses on it, which tied in with her boquet wrap. For this wedding I also made the waistcoats (that can be seen worn by all the men at the wedding, including the groom) of the same fabric as the dress. My dress was an infinity dress that was made amazingly in about 30mins! It was a very small wedding, but a lovely ceremony and she felt like a princess. I was all too happy to be a part in making that happen for her.
Embroidered satin – for the main part of the dress
Gorgette – for the underskirt
Tulle – to give the underskirt more poof
