What a lovely bride! You did just fine. It looks like a very nice fit and the gown turned out beautifully. The thought to use boning in a more covered bodice is one to remember. It probably did both ~ added support to the skirt and helped maintain the shape. It really makes sense.

I'm so impressed at you taking on such a project and all your working around of little problems or things you were unsure of. She looks Beautiful! Well done!

It looks lovely from here. Well done on overcoming the challenges (and meeting the deadline!) Any chance of a bigger picture - or more pictures?

Thank you, she really is beautiful, and the wedding was very sweet. I'm sorry I didn't get more pictures while I was working on the dress. My focus was on just getting it done, so I only got out the camera once, and those pictures have her with curlers in her hair--not something she wants posted online. Sorry! When we get the photos from the photographer, maybe there will be some good shots of the dress, and if so I'll post those. She has been very appreciative. I had her talked into wearing her older sister's wedding dress, but when it came right down to it, she wanted her own, so we made this in less than a week. It was a good experience for both of us. As for the boning, that was actually a suggestion from a woman we met in the fabric store when we were making our plans to combine two patterns. She introduced herself as a professional wedding dress maker, and was very helpful in answering our questions. Meeting her was an answer to prayer! She's the one who suggested putting boning in the bodice, and she was right.

I made this dress as well for a bridal fashion show, although using the entire Vogue patterrn. I've sewn for many years & could not figure out the hem area at the godet either, even after speaking to Vogue tech. help on the phone! You're conclusion's correct, it's to make it look somewhat three dimensional, but is not a significant area if not completed as they instructed. Fabulous job!!

I have just added pictures that I was able to take of the dress last week while visiting my daughter in her new home. I added a link in the review, above.
