2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My handmade wedding dress!! on: November 14, 2008 07:34:56 AM
I loved the idea of having sentimental pieces for our wedding so I wore my mother's veil (I altered it first) and lots of old family jewelry and I made my own dress.
We don't have our pro pics yet and I don't have a pic of the back but it is low cut with a sash and a small train.  I made my wedding dress with the New Look 6401 pattern it's all dupioni silk. What do you think?

I'm looking for fabric for my wedding dress and want to order some swatches. Can anyone recommend a store where they bought their bridal fabric?
I could also use a website that clearly describes the different types of fabric.
