This August, I’ll be attending a family wedding ‘down the shore.’ (That’s at the beach, in Jersey-speak). So, the conditions for dancing will be hot and muggy. I’d love to sew a dress from my vintage pattern stash, picture below.
Please share your thoughts. Which dress would work best for a family wedding? Originally, I planned to do the Spadea dress (lower right) in silvery blue silk shantung with an white organza collar. But the pattern is unprinted, and really beyond my skill set. The Advance 2836 two-piece (lower left) is my favorite, but it might not be best for dancing. That leads me to the Advance 9781 (bottom center). I’ve not sewn a full skirted dress like this. How difficult would it be? Would it need a petticoat? What fabric would you suggest? Appreciate any advice or suggestions that this group can share. Thanks!
