Pleated Goddess Wedding Gown
Added Oct 4, 2010
My best friend got married this summer so I made her dress. We chose a cream silk charmeuse for the dress and skirt lining. The wedding was outside in July so I lined the bodice in cotton which would be more comfortable and moister wicking than silk. I added pleats to the bodice front and back and made a large flower broach which Rosie wore on her waist. Rosie did not want a bustle so I attached a ribbon loop into the hem of the train and she held the train up with her wrist. To throw in “something blue” I used blue fabric for the sleeve facings and added a fun ribbon for the waist stay.
