I hope everyone had a joyous Christmas and New Year surrounded by family, love, laughter and good food.
We don't think about the back of our clothes very often but we do with a wedding dress. In some cases it can be the focus as a bride walks down the isle or stands at the altar so the back must be as beautiful as the front. So let me show you how the back of Brittney's wedding dress is going to be constructed.
Just a reminder to everyone I am working on sort of a pre-dress to make sure that the bodice fits Brittney’s body like a glove. When
I am satisfied with the fit then I will use this as my pattern...after that things will move faster. I sort of want to apologize for how long I am taking but you remember the story about the turtle and the hare...the turtle wins the race.
|Now you see it!|
|Now you don't!|
I have that part of the pattern figured out…on to the shoulder piece.
Here’s the top of the back. From the underarm where we just were the lace goes up to the mid back at the nape of the neck.
At the nape I am going to put some kind of fastener…maybe an invisible fastener or maybe a loop and pearl button but for now I am not going to worry about that.
