|1994 Original Wedding Dress|
Recently I took a class called Fast Track Fitting by Joi Mahon on Craftsy.com. I really liked this technique of creating and altering patterns based on detailed measurements, and used it as the basis for this dress and cocktail dresses for my daughters (future posts).
The final results. A side draped dress with a sweetheart neckline. Rhinestones follow the drape, leading to a chiffon inset (in person the rhinestones stand out significantly more dramatically). The necklace was made from the same rhinestones as the dress. (More details about the rhinestones in a later post).
Due to fabric limitations, the dress was not quite as full as originally planned. Hopefully I'll lose a few pounds before the actual anniversary which will add a little more draping. (I'll also not be sewing right up to the time the photo was taken, so I'll have time to iron!)
