As a mistress of the last minute, I am documenting the progress of the construction of my wedding dress. The wedding is April 18th, and this dress needs to be completed by April 4 to allow for prep time for other matters.
So, this is the pattern. I wanted something bias-like and drapey because I’m a curvey girl and that is a style that looks good on me. It took me forever to decide on the pattern, but I'm finally committed. I decided to make the dress out of navy blue satin charmeuse ordered from FabricMart. Today I've taken the day off work to gather some supplies, have lunch with a friend and delve into this project feet first.
Already nervous about my project, I cut out all of the pattern pieces and then moved directly to the internet for help….
Some good advice here, as I was wondering if I should make a muslin and what to use for lining:
This was the only blog I could find that discussed the process of this dress, so I guess I'm on my own now.
