1950s Wedding Alteration Project

 As you all know, I love vintage!  So when a bride came to me to ask me to help with her 1950s themed wedding attire, I was so excited! She got her dress from a wonderful consignment store in Phoenix called Almond Tree Weddings.  It is a full-length dress with a train, but I am going to alter it to be a tea-length swing dress, similar to the dresses below.

Because we are going to have so much fabric leftover from the dress alteration, she has asked me to create a bolero jacket from the extra!  I found a vintage 1950s pattern on Etsy that I am going to modify for the jacket.  Isn’t it cute?!
  To top it off, she purchased a bright yellow petticoat that will peek out under the dress when she swing dances with her partner.  I am going to also help her make some cute shoe clips and a hair clip!  How fun!

‘I will post photos of the alterations process as it comes together!
