My Wedding Dress!!!

Hello Everyone!

Today I would like to share a very special creation of mine – my wedding dress.

My wedding took place in the beggining of June, and I started working on my dress in middle of April. I took one week off of work, so that I can solely focus on my studies at sewing school and making this dress, which was my last creation I made at school.

The dress was self drafted and for inspiration I used an image I found on Pinterest (maybe you know if – a light blue dress, that seems to be very popular there). I knew I didn’t want a floor-length dress, so I settled with just below the knee length, which gave a dress very elegant and timeless look. I love the sligth off the shoulder look that went so well with the low-bun hairdo.

To make this dress I used about 5 meters of fabric, but I used it for both exterior and interior of the dress. I also added about 5 meters of tulle for the fluffy look. To make the skirt part more shaped, I used an interfacing that gave fabric additional weight and allowed to fall better. The top part is double interaced, so that it stays on the body better.

If you would like to read more about making of this dress, I would love if you would check my blog post here: https://www.sewingjulie.com/blog/my-diy-wedding-dress-what-i-learned-in-the-process

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
