Hi guys! I just wanted to share my vintage-inspired wedding dress with you today! I’ve been working on this dress in one way or another for over a year and I’m so excited to finally share it!
I posted about my search for the right pattern here and you We Sew Retro members helped me out so much! A lady traced her pattern and sent it to me so I could make my dress. I could not have done it without the kindness and generosity of the online sewing community and I am so grateful.

The dress is made from silk shantung with a silk organza underlining and China silk lining. I started with the bodice from Advance 8394, graded it up, changed the shape of the neckline, and made the sleeves set-in instead of dolman. I used the circle skirt from Butterick 5748.
Here’s my inspiration dress and the pattern I used:
