My wedding dress was inspired from my two grandmothers’ wedding dresses, and making it was inspired by my grandmother who made her dress 50+ years ago. The wedding was also a bit 50’s inspired, so it fit in so well.
There was absolutely no wedding dress patterns anywhere close to what I wanted, so we revised 2 patterns, drastically. I just used the patterns to figure out the boning in the bodice and the amount of fabric needed.
Pattern of the Week
Hippie meets grunge in this plaid top with flared sleeves and a round neckline.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
Member Project of the Week
Peneloping's hand beaded frock is a real stunner.
