Steph's Wedding Dress Contribution

This gorgeous Grace Kelly inspired dress was made by Steph of  Orchids in May using Vogue 2979 dress pattern.

Loving the drama of the cathedral train and veil

She made the dress using a very light embroidered tulle and silk dupioni and wisely wore a hoop skirt underneath to get the skirt to sit out nicely. She made a number of alterations to the orginal pattern (see illustration of original below) she moved the buttons to the rear of the dress, moved the front seam lines outwards slightly & then finally  replaced the lace underlining with a corset which she made using Simplicity 5006 sewing pattern.
