My Wedding dress!
When trying on wedding dresses, I couldn’t get myself to find a dress I really liked at a price that was reasonable. So I decided to take ideas from many dresses and make it myself! Used Vogue 2717 as the base with alterations. My grandmother helped with the wrap and the corset back (I couldn’t find any patterns with that style). My mother did the beadwork and embellishments with appliques. My dad even helped out a bit! It took a long time, but it was well worth it and I loved it more than any premade dress… plus it’s original!
Fabrics used: Satin base w/ organza overlay; china silk lining. wrap: shantung
