A Complete Wedding Dress Tour

Want to see my entire wedding dress, head-to-toe so far? I finally put together the complete video I made a few weeks ago with some commentary on the construction process, some obstacles I ran into, and what the next steps will be in completing my dress.  This is a bit of a longer video but I think it illustrates better what I’m trying to do versus writing a long post with a lot of photos.

Let me tell you – choosing a pattern (Marfy) with no instructions has been quite the challenge, but I’m honestly enjoying it.  Using such a pattern for a garment like a wedding dress is not for the faint of heart!

    Your dress is beautiful! I really like the embellishment you chose. It has just the right amount of being something very special, without being overdone. I am enjoying watching it all come together. You will be a beautiful bride!

    Before you hand stitch all that Georgette try this hemming method that I use…

    Stich a line all around the hem 1/4in from the edge.
    Fold the fabric to the wrong side along this line of stitching and stitch again about 1/8in
    Carefully trim the excess fabric as close to the stitching as you can.
    Fold again and stitch one more time … if you can over the previous line of stitching.

    The result should be a perfect narrow flat hem exactly as you would find on a shop bought garment 🙂

    Try it out on some scrap fabric…. it works great around curves too.

    Oh and in the UK we would call the flower embellishment a ‘corsage’ 😀

    Hope you have a fabulous wedding day followed by many, many years of wedded bliss <3

      Yes, that’s exactly the method I found that works! Thanks for the recommendation!
