When we got engaged over a year and a half ago, I knew I wanted to make my own wedding dress. I found a picture of an amazing vintage dress online that I decided I was going to re-create. I spent over a year in the process of making the dress: searching for a pattern, making many muslins to get the fit right, and of course sewing the dress! It was a lot of work but I’m so happy with how it came out!

The dress is all silk. The main fabric is a silk shantung with silk organza for underlining and China silk for the lining. It has an invisible back zipper. The last photo is my inspiration dress.
