Wedding Plans

My adorable Brother-In-Law recently discovered the girl of his dreams and they are tying the knot in August. We couldn't be more thrilled for them both. 
Aren't they cute!?! And I get to make the dress!!!! Yeah, I couldn't be more excited. Breanna wants a 50s style dress with a fitted bodice and a full, just below knee length skirt. Elbow length sleeves and a lace overlay will complete the picture.
We're going to start with New Look 6723, and alter from there. I think we'll need more volume and perhaps a bit more length in the skirt, but otherwise this pattern has really good bones. Y'all know how much I love a princess seamed bodice.

So, we've got the dress all figured out, but Steven and Breanna could still use a little help funding their dream wedding. You can help, too!! Just go over to http://www.tellyourstoryutah.com/ and vote for their video to help them win a $50,000 wedding package. They're couple #13!

  1. It's wonderful!!!
    What about covering the whole dress in lace, a la Princess Grace of Monaco, who married Prince Rainier in 1956? [http://www.gracekellyonline.com/wedding/]

    That would be stunning!!

  2. She's definitely leaning toward an allover lace overlay, although there has been talk of a lace bodice and tulle/chiffon skirt. We'll see...

  5. That is going to be perfect - my mother had the same dress with lace sleeves (overlay) and it was perfect - she wore kitten heels and pointy toed shoes. . What an adorable couple!

  8. How funny! Four years ago I made my sister-in-law's wedding dress...and I used the same pattern! She wanted a colored silk, no white for her as it was a semi-formal wedding, take a look!
