Stewkley, New Yo...
I’m getting married in June and I hated the idea of buying a dress that I could probably make myself so I took a deep breath, bought a couture wedding dress book and went for it! I did buy the petticoat but had to put the bias binding on the base as this was originally just overlocked. I had quite a lot of trouble with creating sleeves as I had made the neckline too wide on the shoulder and this created dragging, in the end I decided to make a bolero in a crushed organza which actually makes the dress much cooler so I am quite happy the arms didn’t work out! There is boning on the waist section with a waist stay and a hand stiched silk lining, thankfully it turned out quite well and fits like a glove :o)
Shot dupion silk fashion fabric (doubled up on the upper half of the body) with a cotton drill interlining and silk lining.
Made from a mixture of two patterns and some imagination!
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
