And For A Little More 1883 Harper’s Bazar…

This is a continuation of a project that I’ve been working on for myself starting back last Fall. and it’s provided inspiration to a bridal dress project I’m currently working on that will be made in ivory.

Do you ever have a “dress crush” and you have to have it at all costs? I waited for a few years until the one perfect fabric came my way, and then I pounced on it!

Pattern matching fun…can you find all the areas that I used that concept? It was fun!

To the eye, this era appears to looks “upholstered”, but it’s deceivingly lightweight when done correctly. Everything is hand tacked in place, there’s not much of a chance of this gown flowing in a breeze.  🙂 Stay tuned for more updates!

  1. I absolutely *ADORE* this dress. It’s my favorite blue-ish shade of Bing Cherry red and it has black accents. Paired with the ivory lace … PERFECTION!

    There is no improving on this one. Thank you so much for sharing it with the world. We all need a bit of beauty to turn to when we’re feeling down. ^_^
