    • Sonja Wedding dress

      Added 2 days ago

      I wanted to make my wedding dress. As I found the perfect pattern to fit a dress I saw on the Internet, I jumped in the project!
      I ajusted the sewing pattern Sonja Dress so it looks like a wedding dress.

      Added Mar 22, 2017

      A white dress is a pretty scary thing to wear for a lot of us. But a white fitted dress? Well, that’s just raising the ante and many times…there really is no winner, unless it’s a wedding dress! But I went for it anyways and made myself one.
