1950s lace dress for a wedding witness

August 31, 2013

Hi everybody!

Lately, I have been working on a piece that gave me a lot of stress : it was for a future witness at a wedding, and it was for the first time for somebody who wasn’t one of my relatives or friends! Not to say that I really had to do the best I could!

She wanted a 1950s style dress, with lace sleeves and pleated skirt. To make it I used two patterns from a vintage sewing book I received on my birthday. (The skirt from the first pattern and the top from the second). The lady also wanted a lower neckline, sleeves and belt with lace, and a petticoat)

After she tried the muslin, I made it with the real fabric, some dupion taffeta, with black lining and stretchy (for confort) lace.

And it finally looked like that :

 

If you want more pictures and inofrmations about the construction, I’ll be glad to welcome you to my blog! 🙂

Thanks for reading!
