Very inspired by all the lovely 1950s style ball gowns (and less so by the price and quality of wedding dresses I’ve seen), I set out to sew my own wedding dress. It was the best sewing project I’ve ever done!
Based on Vogue Vintage pattern 8645
ivory taffeta lining from JoAnn’s. Ivory satin bodice, cummerbund and tulle from Pacific Fabrics. And ivory beaded lace from Fabric Depot in Portland.
