That means all things wedding around here. With two twenty-something daughters, the fun never stops as someone is always getting engaged or married.Three years ago the wedding season caught me off guard and I spent a fortune outfitting everyone for wedding related occasions. Now, I’m always in the Mood for a wedding.
Sewing has given me access to the world’s greatest designers in an entirely new dimension, especially when sewing with fabric from Mood!
I’m wearing Carolina Herrera to the next wedding 🙂 (check out Mood’s Carolina Herrera fabrics here)
I love Carolina Herrera so much I created a Carolina Herrera Moodboard on the Mood Fabrics website for reference. The only problem is they don’t last long!
My pattern is New Look 6910
I bought the pattern in hopes of making View A or D, and even went to the trouble of making a muslin.
but the beautiful Carolina Herrera silk brocade was intended for structured clothing rather than draping or pleating.
Keeping in style with the fabric, I embellished the belt with a rhinestone buckle in lieu of the self-fabric flower, then hand-stitched the belt to the dress before inserting the zipper.
Though the pattern instructions call for lining only the upper bodice, I lined the complete dress with this gold China Silk from Mood.
Time consuming – yes, but stay tuned……. Now that I have the perfect muslin for all of the pattern variations I intend to make it worth my while so much love is in the air!
