Description

This dress was for a customer wanting a simple, short wedding dress for a registry office wedding. She couldn’t find what she wanted in the shops so we went through a number of different styles in my pattern books before we found Vogue V7848. I didn’t actually use the pattern in the end, but created a dress block toile to fit her shape. The fabric is Duchess Satin with a silk chiffon overlay on the skirt and a diamonte trim at the neck and waist. The bodice was a challenge as it is ruched. Trying to get the ruching so that it was even but not uniform took a bit of fiddling. I stab stitched through the layers to keep them in place. The zip also was bit stiff as it is concealed but has two layers of duchess satin (including the ruched one) and the lining sewn to it.
