My mother and I made this dress together for my wedding. it was a special experience to make it together. We took a 40’s silk slip and reshaped it until it was backless. Then we constructed the outer gown out of the silk gauze, belted with victorian pink silk ribbon from my mother’s stash.
No pattern was used, I just drew what I wanted and we broke out the scissors.
Silk gauze, silk charmeuse, silk ribbon
