Wedding dress progress – Omg the liner fits!
Like a glove, I tell you LIKE A GLOVE!
Yes, after redrafting all10 pieces and painstakingly sewing it all together, it’s perfect. I’m just beside myelf right now, I’m so so happy, relieved and excited! Ha, Analise and I were whooping and cheering when she put it on! She’s pleased as punch, as it’s far surpassed anything she had envisioned which just sends me over the moon. YAY!
PHEW! I can now finally move on to drafting and sewing the mock up for the skirt and petticoat.
I bought this gorgeous, silky and very lightweight eco friendly bamboo voile for the petticoat. I’ll be sure to snag a picture of it in the next day or two. It’s just the perfect fabric for a sweltering hot summer’s day (which is most likely what we’ll have). It’s extremely breathable, and won’t stick to her legs if she get’s sweaty. I almost bought this cotton batiste, this extremely thin thin cotton, but I could just see it plastering itself to her legs the second they caught any moisture at all. I mean how awful would that feel? Nope, bamboo baby, I can’t wait to see how it works out!
I also have decided to keep the silk as streamlined and molded to the bodice liner as possible. I tried out some draping and no matter what I do it either ends up looking like mummy wrappings or just plain bulky. See?
a center pull draping..
a sweetheart draping…
It just seems to muck up the nice clean line of the bodice liner.
Ok. Next up, a post about her wedding shower..
