My Retro style wedding dress

Hi I’m new here and I’ve wanted to share my wedding dress with just about anybody :-) . I started with a McCall’s pattern but after I got started I quit following the pattern after I finished the top of the bodice. I changed the waist style and added to the skirt so I’m not really sure what I did but it turned out nice.

I did almost everything for the wedding because I just love doing crafts. I’m not a great cook but I made the reception meal myself too just to impress the mother in law since she’s practically tie world’s best cook :-) . I made the cake too but I can’t get the pictures to upload. Thanks for viewing the pictures I do have to share. Sorry about the quality of the pictures too, they’re pictures from my cell because I can’t get my scanner to work :-(

I'm the mom of three. I have been sewing since I was 8, I took a little break once I became a mother but got back on the sewing train two years ago once I discovered how fun it is to sew for my girls. I sale little girls clothes when I have the time too.

thank you ma’am! I was so busy the day of! I just wanted to pass out! And then my youngest dress ended having to be altered before she put it on!

I LOVE seeing a bride in pink! Fabulous dress, a real memory maker for you and for all the girls at the wedding!

It’s actually red accents, it’s just bad picture quality that makes it look pink.

Refreshing to see a wedding dress that shows the bride’s skills!

That dress made my then fiance very jealous for two months. If I wasn’t with the kids, I was shut up in the room with a dress he couldn’t see :-) the look on his face when he finally did see it was priceless though!

What a great dress. I love the fullness of the skirt with the lacy hem trim. Best Wishes on your marrage.
