I knew, when I got engaged last summer, that I did not want a traditional wedding dress. I didn’t want the usual styles. I didn’t want the usual prom dress fabrics. I didn’t want the usual white or cream color.
So I elected to make a grey Victorian gown. I hand crocheted the lace and used mismatched linen buttons down the front. I also recovered my hat, which I picked up at an antique store.
I used a combination of a very fine grey cotton and white eyelet with a slightly shimmery finish for the dress. I lined it with a plain white cotton broadcloth. I wanted the dress to be light since there were so many layers and the wedding was outdoors in August!
