Short and Sweet: A casual wedding dress

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!
