So since my last post I have completely changed my mind about the type of wedding dress I will be making.
I decided to go for something more long and sleek. Long means I can wear converse trainers with my dress!
I have gone for Butterick 5779.
Although I don’t think it will look much like that when it is finished. I am choosing the sleeveless version since our wedding is in July although I might add long draping LOTR-esque sleeves that are open to the shoulder to add more drape and flow since I don’t plan on having a long veil.
I am using the silk lining to make a toile which I will fit and then make the dress the same. I have a lovely yellow lace for the motifs.
The main body of the gown is a lovely white silk satin which falls beautifully and is as light as a feather. I am in the process of cutting out all the pieces although I don’t have a large enough cutting table so I am having to cut on the floor. Anyway, watch this space for more wedding dress updates!
