Bernina DIY Wedding

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that we actually got everything finished. If it wasn't for my mother, we never would have made it. I love you, Mom!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself a lot of time... have friends who can sew help you... and DON'T wait until 1 month before the wedding to start sewing!! You'll have a nervous breakdown. I had 2.

What you will need

  • Multiple materials... We used gold metallic thread and purple & ecru size 20 crochet thread for the hand-knit lace and snood. The dresses were McCalls 6097. For my dress
  • we used green dress satin and a navy blue brocade. For my Mom's dress
  • we used purple dress satin and the same brocade. For the guys

Thank you!! Believe it or not, we got everything we needed from Joann's. The brocade can be kind of difficult to f ind, and this was the second pattern that I found where I could actually buy the yardage I needed for both dresses.
