My Sister's Wedding Dress August 25 by Marusya Grace Follow

Week 1:

Can it get any roman­tic than this?

My sis­ter moved to Italy sev­eral years ago. Of course, she fell in love in the Eter­nal City (of love) and about a month ago became all at once engaged!
But there is no love like fam­ily love, so she came back to cel­e­brate her wed­ding. Rome is beau­ti­ful, but there’s noth­ing more joy­ful than a din­ner with the whole fam­ily, nor any­thing more roman­tic than spend­ing the day with your new hus­band (new brother!) in the place where you grew up...

....................................................

Week 2: 

It’s crunch time!

A lit­tle over 3 weeks until the wed­ding and  I am swamped with work (both legal and sewing)! But, I hope to accom­plish all the projects: wed­ding dress, brides­maid dress, mother of the bride dress, and father of the bride out­fit (jacket and/or pants).

Because I don’t have much time to write, I will basi­cally share the wed­ding dress­mak­ing story through pic­tures (with a few tips and com­ments along the way)...

Next: Finish the silk skirt hem & make the lace skirt overlay

Recap

  • Week 3 Wedding Dress Progress:

    I finished the lace overlay and hem! Since my sister was gone for the second fitting (with the silk underlay), I missed the chance to correct the pattern before cutting the lace. Unfortunately we had to make alterations after fitting the dress :(  Read more on my blog here.

    But after this minor headache, I think we figured out something that will work and still look very nice!

  • Finished the Dress in time!

    At the last minute, I ended up using the top portion of a Burda dress pattern for the top.

    Thanks! I have to give my younger sister credit for styling her hair and make-up! I think the hair helped finish the look.

    Love the lace! Sorry you had to make corrections, but I'm sure it's probably more obvious to your eyes than to the guests'. Lucky sister.
