Butterick 6582

I finally finished my dress for the wedding,I'm happy with the results, it was a simple dress to construct and gives a nice fit.

However let's talk about the fabric: silk taffeta. This fabric wrinkles if you look at it, remember Lady Diana's wedding dress? It was silk taffeta. It also water spots...thankfully when it has gotten wet due to unforeseen circumstances (the iron dripped) it quickly dried without leaving a stain. It is a wonderful color, I believe it is cross dyed, one way pink the other blue to give the purplish iridescent color.

I finally decided on making the bows and I like the way they look.

I just love the shoes!!!

I'll have more pictures later after the wedding.

Tomorrow I'm off to New Jersey to fit the bride, wish me luck!


  1. Wow! Looks beautiful on you!

  2. Fabulous! I prefer to underline taffeta with silk organza. Nothing will keep taffeta from wrinkling with wear, but organza seems to reduce it.

  3. Lisette.- Ahora soy yo que paso a visitarte. Gracias por tus palabras en mi blog. Felicitaciones por este último vestido, te quedó precioso. Un fuerte abrazo desde España y hasta pronto. Paco

  4. Lisette, it's bee-yoo-ti-ful. And, I never knew what Princes Di's dress was made from. Your bows are just perfect to boot!

  5. I love your dress, Lisette. What a sumptuous creation. The colour is wonderful!
    I didn't add bows on mine, but you're making me reconsider.


I love hearing from you!
