My mom and I made this dress in the midst of a short, 9-week engagement! My fiance and I were set on an outdoor wedding at a specific venue, and there was only one fall date that worked for us and our bridal party. Within 2 weeks, my mom and I purchased the fabric, altered the pattern, and made the dress. We followed online DIY instructions for the birdcage veil. We just spent a few hundred dollars on my entire ensemble... a huge savings compared to most dresses and veils. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start early! And make a muslin "practice" gown to ensure a good fit. We made many adjustments between the pattern, the practice gown, and the final gown.
