Tropical Wedding Dress

Added Sep 6, 2016

by Ann Mullins






I made this dress for my second wedding ceremony, this one in the US. It was hot as Hades so I wanted to wear something tropical and comfortable. I also wanted a retro feel so that I could wear it dancing on weekends/at events. The fabric is this delicious cotton I found on Etsy- the perfect shade of red! I’m just disappointed that I didn’t get a shot of the lining- it was a gorgeous saffron yellow and I put a little purple pop-pom edging on the hem. I also changed the construction. Like many before me, I removed the frill and just made a halter strap. I also made the side back pieces shirred for better ease of movement while dancing.
