I decided awhile back that I wanted to make my wedding dress. For several reasons... I had been looking all over and hadn't found anything that I liked. I wanted a vintage dress, but seemed a little too hard since I would have to get it cleaned and maybe altered etc. I didn't want to shop at David's Bridal or any store like it. I didn't want to spend a fortune on my dress. I was starting to realize that this was harder than I thought. And I soon found out that Wedding dresses are OUTRAGEOUS in price and just not super unique. Oh and I also was looking for a short dress so I could show off my sassy shoes!
It was sooooooo cute! and it was only $4.50.
For Christmas I received a gift certificate to Sew to Speak from my Mom. I knew right away that I wanted to take the Personal Fit class and make this pattern. Sheila Brex is the instructor and she basically walks you through the dress making process. From measuring and adjusting the pattern, cutting it out to sewing it all together. The class is only two sessions but Sheila amazingly offered to meet with me another time to help me put it all together. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT! And it was so pretty :)
I used Swiss dot fabric over a bridal satin.
I want to wear it everyday! But it has to wait until July 2nd, 2011..... Eeeee! I am getting excited!
Happy Saturday! -Julia
