This post most relates to the 'home' section of "Home, Garden, and Cooking"...I would imagine.
I'm curious if anyone has sewn their own wedding dress? I'm getting married in April and initially wanted to make my own dress. Alot of the sewing and wedding dress mags had an article stating the only skills necessary were "basic home sewing skills."
So I was inspired and encouraged to hit the fabric shop. I purchased some beautiful monece satin and some teal satin to make a practice dress out of. When I finished the teal dress (empire waist), it looked more like a nightgown than a WEDDINGY Dress... Sigh.
I still have the monece satin, but I have started looking at discontinued designer dresses, as you can get them for as low as 25 bucks--perfect for a pragmatic INTJ.
Anyways... has anyone experienced making their wedding dress and how did it turn out...any trials? ...any great turnouts?
