Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. You’ve planned every detail down to the nth degree, but you still can’t find The One. No, not your husband-to-be. The dress! The one item of clothing you’ll cherish more than any other in your lifetime. So why spend months trawling boutiques, getting flustered by unhelpful sales assistants, when you could design your very own perfect, made-to-measure dress? Professional dressmaker Becky Drinan will guide you through the entire process.
You will be given advice on dresses to suit every body shape. You will also be given all the information you need on equipment, fabrics, sewing techniques and how to work from and alter patterns. Finally, you’ll discover three gorgeous gowns, a lace boler and a selection of veils to make, with accompanying pull-out pattern sheets enclosed in a pocket at the back of the book.
You can either follow the step-by-step instructions to the letter in order to create the exact dress (or dresses – why not have more than one on the day?), or you can make changes to the bodice, skirt or sleeves using the techniques explained to make it individual to you. Whichever you choose, with this book you’ll be in control and soon the proud owner of your very own dream wedding dress.
