July Wedding Dress

Added Jan 13, 2010

Seaside, Califor...






My mother and I made this dress together for my wedding. it was a special experience to make it together. We took a 40’s silk slip and reshaped it until it was backless. Then we constructed the outer gown out of the silk gauze, belted with victorian pink silk ribbon from my mother’s stash.
No pattern was used, I just drew what I wanted and we broke out the scissors.

Material Notes

Silk gauze, silk charmeuse, silk ribbon




Garment Type

    I thrifted a dress of a similar shape, but it’s not a wedding dress! I am amazed at how beautiful it is, you look so great in it! I like that you built in on a slip! Was the slip a special heirloom? Congratulations on the wedding :)

    Beautiful! I love the simple lines of it. Congrats on the marriage and a job well done! And for being daring and cutting without a pattern.

    wow, were you not afraid to cut the fabric without pattern? Or had you drawn the size lines directly on the fabric?
