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!
