Wedding dress from '07

Postby Blue_and_Gray » Fri Jun 24, 2011 6:45 pm

Hello all!

I've been lurking for YEARS and finally got around to signing up and showing off my wedding gown.
This was my bridal portrait shoot at a local art museum


Bodice is a combo of TV416 and TV463. I made a false vest front to give me some mock curves (I was very barrel-shaped at the time). The skirt is TV202 and TV362, minus the front panel of the overskirt.

Then I decided at the last minute to get all kinds of creative and add some sort of Phantom of the Opera-esque train, that didn't quite reach the floor. I screwed up the measurements on the length and it ended up being not only too short but weighed down the skirt train. Thank goodness for the TV108 Grand Bustle underneath!


Thank you Heather for your wonderful patterns and website!

Pretty. Your sleeves are lovely. Love the touch of color in the train. You look beautiful!
