the bedcloth wedding dress

I am going to make a wedding dress for my soon-to-be sister in law. We are right now trying to find out what exactly she wants and to try some things out, I bought two bedclothes and some very cheap sheer fabric yesterday and pinned it onto my dressform. Et voil!
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to pin some fabric onto my sister in law. That would be easy! :-)

    Great idea! I made my daughter’s wedding dress that way. I couldn’t find a pattern we liked so I cut out fabric and molded it to her basically. I draped her in fabric and cut the pieces out on her body. I then used those pieces as a pattern. By doing that it allowed me to nip and tuck where needed. The dress fit perfectly and was really beautiful if I do say so myself. Good luck with your dress

      Thank you. I think she will like it but we will certainly try some more variations. Sorry, I meant bed sheets! Made of very soft cotton (very cheap alternative to buying cotton fabric)

    It looks very promising! I know Vogue has a vintage pattern that looks quite like this!
