Hi, I really like this forum!
I hope someone can help me and maybe the posts will help others too..
I am making my wedding dress using this pattern
– option B – to make my wedding dress with my mum!
We’ve made a toile and are happy with the fit, foundation and skirt. However, now I’ve put it on, I don’t really like the centre seam down the front.
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on whether it would be possible to adapt the pattern to have one front piece and create asymmetric folds, rather than the ruching? similar to the bodice of this dress..
I’m happy with having the seam in the lining and foundation pieces but wanted to try to cover it up with the top layer.
I’ve bought a dress form and we tried to fold the top layer on the form and pin to the lining pieces but it didn’t work very well!
It’s difficult to pull the folds tight to the lining pieces.
I did also try creating the folds flat like I have read on other posts, and I think this would work for the back..but because of how the bodice is curved at the top it’s not really working flat either,
Any ideas would be much appreciated!!
The other option might be to keep the top layer flat as the lining, creating one front piece by folding on the seam and trying to hide the darts etc with some lace..hmmm! We might try a toile of this today!
