I just finished this cute little custom wedding dress! The bride wanted a short strapless dress made from cotton sateen that she can wear again in the future. Oh and she wanted pockets, that was a priority! I started with a Cynthia Steffe Design for Vogue Patterns as the base. I liked the vintage feel of the pattern (and it has pockets!) and the dress features a sweetheart neckline and fun pleats in the skirt.
After fitting the muslin and the basic dress pattern, I added ruching to the bust and a ruched waistband. I love the verticle ruching on the back above the waistband! The dress features a built-in corset and waiststay for the ultimate comfort in a strapless dress! No slipping or tugging! Also check out the cute peekaboo lace along the bodice and at the bottom of the skirt!
I am finally catching up on my June work, so look for more fun posts coming up!
