Description

Something we whipped up three weeks before my mother’s wedding! It was an absolute pain, but I really enjoyed having the chance to do this for her.

Now, we did not make the entire dress! We found the original dress at a shop for ten dollars! I used a pattern that i had for a circle skirt (which might have been a mistake), lengthened it, and attached it a little below the natural waist line. The sleeves were someting I drafted myself (super easy or I wouldn’t have been able to do it) and we used decorative beading.

pay no attention to the unpressed dress or the adorable puppy hiding beneath the dress

also, ignore nighttime photography mishap

If I were to do this again…and have more than three weeks to create something…I would use a wider beading, use something other than a circle skirt pattern, line the overskirt, and make sleeves wider

nonetheless, she looked beautiful…but it’s kind of hard for her not to

Material Notes

bridal satin
