What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Butterick 4131 Link to website or photo butterick.mccall.com/b4131-products-1127.php?page_id=153 What are you most proud of? That she loved the final result. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself plenty of time. There is a lot of hand sewing due to the beading and the finishes. Also when you change a pattern, other things come up. Stay open minded and just go for it. I've never done a dress as detailed as this but I'm very happy with the outcome.

You Can Make This

ilesmom made #Craftwedding with:

  • I reused an Ivory colored embroidered lace from a late 1980's wedding dress that was given to me to see if my daughter could use it. It was 'dated' so we decided to reuse the lace. I placed sequins
  • silver bugle beads and seed beeds over the embroidery. In order to make the top
  • I had to sew together the lace sleeves from the old dress but that was not enough so I used a small amount of ivory organza and 'blended' it into one fabric. The solid fabric was a polyester blend 'weddng' fabric. Invisible zipper
