Wedding dress like a Renoir paintingcomments (3) September 27th, 2009 in gallery
This Renoir painting, Dance in the City, always inspired me. When my husbane-to-be proposed, it was clear that this was the theme of my dress: 1880 style. A costume Butterick pattern served as the basis, and wonderful fabric and lace, and creativity did the rest. A lot of details were hand sewed. The fitting was adjusted to my body. I probably spent 100 hours working on this dress over a period of about 6 months... and had time to do cute flower girls dresses as well (not shown here). Imagine your dream dress, think about it carefully, plan every detail, take your time, be patient, ask for help when needed, and create this unique dress that only you will ever wear for this day of your life!
