- Wedding: May 2016 - St. John\'s Lutheran Church
As some of you may know, I made my own wedding dress. I loved wearing it and now I want someone else to get the same pleasure out of it!
I am 5’6″, 130 pounds, about a US size 8. The dress comes just below my knees. IMPORTANT: since the dress is handmade, there is no seam allowance. This means it CANNOT be let out. So a person smaller than a size 8 could get it taken in, but nobody bigger than a size 8 can wear this dress. My measurements are 35-28-40, just for reference, although the dress is not fitted through the hips.
The underlayer is a simple cream linen, and the lace is a poly blend. The dress is super lightweight and breathable, and I had a blast dancing in it. I paid about $100 for the fabric, and I spent many hours patterning and sewing the dress, which is why I’m asking for a little more money. Obviously I have wonderful memories in this dress and am hesitant to part with it, so please don’t offer less than the $150. Also, be aware that in the photos I am wearing a crinoline underneath the skirt.
