Wedding plans

Tori's wedding is kind of a World War II/War bride theme, and she wants to re-create this picture for her engagement pictures. She bought a vintage 1940s pattern and we've been making it this week.

Here she is modeling the top with her hat and gloves. You can see it's not quite finished. It needs buttons and you can see the facing for the peplum hanging down. The skirt is in about the same condition. It needs the waistband finished and hemmed. We should get that done today.

Vintage patterns are hard to work with I'll tell you what. It's like they make the pattern expecting you to seriously alter it. On just the top I had to add 4 darts and reposition 2 more darts, bring in the sides and make the neck bigger. But it fits like a glove now and it's so cute!!

  1. That will be a cool pic...but I hope they try to get one where his hand is not in front of her face...I would love to be able to see that it IS Tori and Dustin, and not just some random couple! :)
    I don't know what Coeur d'Alene is like, but they will have to be downtown to get the background right. I hope they have fun with it!
