vogue 1776 - Carolina Herrera wedding dress


vogue 1776

Now how's this for a cool pattern insert? This Carolina Herrera pattern had a sweet little booklet on wedding dress sewing tips inside it!

Considering that I only bought it for the instructions anyway, this was a nice bonus! I first saw this pattern a few weeks ago on a vintage pattern site, where it was $75. Last week I stumbled over it on ebay for $6 so I snatched it up. I didn't realize that all the "couture gown tips" were in a little color booklet, along with the huge instruction sheet specifically on the dress. I'll be browsing through this, picking up some tips...

I still love the research into wedding dresses! You could write a small novel when you are done.

This pattern is very similar to my own Carolina Herrrera wedding dress, worn in 1991. Mine was out of silk dotted swiss and was ruched at the bodice and short sleeves.
