Two piece corset and two layered skirt wedding outfit.

I made this wedding dress as two pieces. I used commercial patterns for both pieces.

Corset The top is a satin boned victorian-style corset lined with cotton. I used Laughing Moon's Dore corset pattern. This is the fourth corset I have made from this pattern, and is still quite a challenge to fit properly! The top of the corset is accented with chiffon which I held in place with a pin.

Skirt The bottom is a full skirt with a cotton bottom layer and an organza top layer. I used a costume pattern for the skirt, McCalls M6101. It is an easy pattern, and I created the two layers by cutting the pattern twice out of the two different fabrics and sewing them as two skirts. The two skirt layers were combined as one before I stitched them to the elastic waistband.

I did not make the petticoat or the gloves.
