1940’s Style Wedding Dress

The Commission

My client wanted a 1940’s style dress for her wedding.

The dress is semi-fitted in the bodice with soft gathering at the bustline and shoulders for shaping.  The gown has an Empire line shaped band attached to an ankle-length A-line skirt.

It is fastened at the front with self-fabric covered buttons and loops.  The sleeves are puffed at the armhole and shaped at the bottom.  The whole gown is interlined with cotton lawn and lined in a breathable, non-static lining.
