As I promised, I am back with more information on how to sew a bridal wedding gown. After finalizing the bustle, it is time to think of the rest of the wedding gown. The measurements are extremely important, for the wedding gown must match perfectly with the bride’s body shape, in order to create harmony and a plain, beautiful look. So that, if you decide to work alone, you will find this part difficult, for you have to dress on the gown multiple times until is ready for the final adjustments and you wouldn’t find it funny at all if the stubbornness of working alone will lead to inaccurate measurements. If you want to make your work easier, it would be better to ask a friend or a sibling to help you out with the exact measurements. You will see how easy and practical it can be.

Once you have the measurements you can start sewing the bridal wedding gown. It is highly recommended the use of a muslin, that is a plain material of woven, used as a model. This can be made after several edding gown patterns, which can be chosen according to your own tastes and wishes. Pay attention to the style that you opt for, and take into consideration the one that suits you and your body shape. Using the musein you can start putting the to-come wedding into pins to better realize the shape according to your fit and to eliminate the surplus of fabric. After you have tried it on, with the help of some of your friends, you can take off the gown and start to sew it, without removing the pins, so that the measurements taken to be right.

After each stage, you have to dress on in order to see the differences and make detect any other alterations. These are of three types: the hemming, when length must be adjusted, then the bodice alterations, for having the exact measurements and the dress to fit perfectly on the bride’s waist and breasts and, in the case of sleeved gowns, the alteration of sleeves. When finishing sewing all the pieces, the gown must pass through a harsh “exam”. All of them must be put or stitched together after the pattern you have chosen and it must fit you.

Once the dress finished, you can start decorating it. For a wedding gown, you can use beads, pearls, laces, frills, ribbons or flowers that suit the gown’s color, style, ornaments. If you decide to wearing a veil, than it must be ornamented too. Use your imagination and inspiration and convert your veil into a work of art. You can use for as ornaments, little silk flowers, rows of beads or pearls, hand embroidery, feathers or silk ribbons. A simple wedding gown will, therefore, request a rich ornamented veil. The possibilities are as much as your imagination can count them.

Here it is, your own wedding gown! The only thing that you have to do from now on is smile and say “Yes” when the priest will ask. Good luck!
