My friend Kelly is getting married in August. She asked me to sew her wedding dress! I couldn’t be happier!
Here are the patterns I will be using. Kelly wants the top of the black dress and the skirt of the yellow dress on the right pattern. I plan on combining the two.
For a perfect fit I made alterations to the patterns.
Lets start with this pattern.
The pattern has a 37″ waist. I have to add 4″ to make it a 41″ waist. I have 3 pieces for the midriff, so I need to add 1.33″ to each piece. For the bodice I need to add 1″ to each side. Here is my math.
Here are all of my pieces with the waist adjustment.
Next I will be making alterations to the skirt of the second pattern to give Kelly a little more hip space.
