I created my wedding gown based on Vogue pattern V8615, and the skirt was from a vintage Butterick pattern B4919. The fabric is a dupion silk in antique cream (or ‘ecru’). I cut the silk on the bias which resulted in the gorgeous shine and contrast picked up in the photos. The panel on the bottom was a nightmare to cut and fit but i put some weight in it with heavy interfacing which helped the fabric to drop nicely and form neat folds. The skirt is a full circle and took hours to hem by hand but was amazing to dance in! The waist band was a piece of gorgeous beading that i hand stitched along the waist seam.
