My Wedding Dress 01 by BenaeQuee My Wedding Dress 01 by BenaeQuee
Materials:
Silk Taffeta (dress - 12 yds)
Swarovski Rhinestones in Siam and Crystal
Poly Boning
Silk Satin (lining)
Cotton (built in bodice)
Total Cost: $400 for all fabrics, notions, under garments, jewelry, tiara comb, and shoes!

My labor of love, I made 2 1/2 mock-ups before even coming near my good silk fabric. The fabric I found for a steal at $10/yd (60" wide). I managed to talk the guy down from $15/yd. The dress is inspired by a Maggie Sotterro dress I fell in love with, but was NOT paying $1200 for!

The bodice is self lined with a cotton inner layer for the built in 'bustier'. The skirt and train are lined in the satin.

The pick-ups on the skirt are fabric eaters, I had to extend the hemline by 60" because of them. Each pick-up is accented with a small Swarovski 'applique' I made myself.

Here's a cute kissy photo of Will and I so you can see the dress on me, along with the train :D

how did you approch the patternmaking for this - did you make full calios in the testing phase - inclusive of the tucking -
how did you challange hiding the side seams in the tucking process of is it simply a top layer with extended hem length tucked and sewn up , is the hem then bagged out with braiding or open?

i am making my wedding dress and it is the 2nd full gown style wedding dress i have made- includes tucks similar but more organic to your dress but i am having issues patternmaking it an desciding on how much to fully construct before just 'winging it' with the tucks-
how did you approch renmoving and securing any draping you designed on the dummy and how did the fall change with final fitting process?
