Vintage Vogue Wedding Dress

Added Aug 6, 2011

Seattle, Washing...






Very inspired by all the lovely 1950s style ball gowns (and less so by the price and quality of wedding dresses I’ve seen), I set out to sew my own wedding dress. It was the best sewing project I’ve ever done!

Based on Vogue Vintage pattern 8645

Material Notes

Fabrics include:
ivory taffeta lining from JoAnn’s. Ivory satin bodice, cummerbund and tulle from Pacific Fabrics. And ivory beaded lace from Fabric Depot in Portland.

    Thanks for all the kind feedback! I was a bit daunted by making a bodice with boning, but that was actually one of the most enjoyable parts. Now gathers…that’s another story :)
