The pictures attached have kindly been given to us by one of our regular very experienced sewing customers named Ulli. She made her wedding Dress from this VOGUE pattern. She states:
” It took me 1 1/2 months, during which I probably had a total of 50 working hours’. The fabric she used was, “Silk Crepe de Chine, heavy weight, in ‘Pale Gold’ and Double Silk Georgette, in ‘Vintage Blue’, both from Beckford Silk”. She says, “It cost £400 for fabric (it is after all, real silk) and £20 for pattern, plus some odds and sods, zipper/thread etc. So probably £450 altogether.”
I love the contrast Vintage Blue Double Silk Georgette that Ulli has chosen to use on the bodice. It is a BEAUTIFUL shade and gives a calm feel to the outfit, and is clearly the theme colour that runs through the entire wedding theme, see the bridesmaids in those 1950s blue dresses, STUNNING! With her own wedding dress she has managed to keep the effect of the mid 1950s vintage style and design, and the belt breaks the bottom skirt area to the upper bodice, giving an illusion of keeping top and bottom quite separate. The pearl necklace adds that further 1950s style, which is a must have accessory! Well done Ulli and thank you for allowing us to share these super pictures.
