Good news, everyone! My gentleman asked me to marry him and I said yes! I’m so excited about becoming a family, a unit, a team. He is honestly the best and the sweetest; he gets me and I get him.
One of the first questions people asked me after I told them we were engaged was, “Will you make your dress?”
Now, you know I am incredibly slow at sewing. I take frequent breaks, and sometimes life gets in the way. With that being said, I’d like to try.
I am not sure what I want, other than “vintage,” “flattering,” and “not fussy.” I would like it to be like a cross between a cocktail dress and a gown. It can be knee length or ankle. I don’t want sleeves, and I rather like the idea of a halter. I do like details like pleating and small gathers. I do not want beading or lace because I don’t want to sew with that. I think 30s bias cut, 50s circle skirt, or 70s drapiness would look nice on me. I’ve seen a few wedding Cambies out there.
If you could sew a casual wedding dress, what pattern would you sew?
