Wow. That could not have been easy to make especially with that fabric. It came out fabulous! What a beautiful vintage pattern and how lovely that you used it. To heck with those ugly ready made bridesmaid dresses!
No joke, right? I was veeeeeeery excited to be granted full creative control on this dress!
lol at the "size 16, 34 bust 37 hip" HA!
great pattern find BTW- where did you get it?
Ha! Yeah, the other interesting thing is this was the largest size in which this pattern was printed. The pattern was given to me as a gift, but I believe it was found on eBay.
That is lovely! Is the skirt bias cut? It looks very drapey and flowy. Looks like it was a beautiful day for an outdoor ceremony too!
The whole shebang is bias cut.
I was initially intimidated by this, but it actually made the project easier (once it was cut out), as it stopped the satin from raveling (well, mostly). I did have to piece the skirt, though.
