Why You Shouldn’t Be Grieving For Your Wedding Dress: I’m Going To Make It To You

A few weeks ago, I had a wedding dress in my closet, but it was getting pretty late and I just didn’t want to spend the night in the closet, so I was going to make it myself. 

And then I got a call from a friend. 

She had just gotten married and was planning a big, fancy wedding and wanted to be able to wear it to the reception. 

I asked her what her dress would look like if she made it herself, and she said she’d like it to look something like this. 

What a great idea. 

The dress has the perfect shape, a perfect length, and the perfect width. 

It is super cute, but is it a dress? 

I love that you’re making it yourself. 

Now, I’m not saying that the dress is perfect, and it certainly isn’t. 

But it is not as big and bulky as it could be, and I love the fact that you are letting me do all the work. 

You’ve given me permission to share a project that I think would be fun and exciting for you and your family, but I’m sure you’ll love this.

Here are some tips on how to make a nice dress that looks great at your wedding.


Pick a Design I think a great design for your dress should be something that you can customize and make your own.

I love sewing dresses for weddings, so the most fun thing to do is to try a different design. 

In the example below, you can see I’ve picked a design that I can create my own fabric with. 

This is a pattern that I love to use in many of my other projects, but in this case I have my friend as the guide. 

My friend loves to sew and you should too! 


Use a Fabric You don’t need to make your dress yourself.

I’ve done a few different fabrics and they all look good in this dress, so this is not a special case. 

Here is the fabric that I used to make the dress in this tutorial. 


Make a Ribbon This is the best part of this project. 

Just make the ribbon and sew it on. 

Make sure you use a good quality ribbon because it will last forever. 


Tie it off with a Ribbon Stitching is really simple. 

Using a ribbon makes it really easy to see how you are doing something and it makes it much easier to see what you are sewing. 


Sew It You will probably have to do this a few times before you get it just right. 

Once you are happy with your finished product, you’ll want to make sure it is secure in place before you start sewing. 


Attach it to Your Clothesline This is another way to attach the dress to your clothesline. 

Use a ribbon and glue it to your line to make something that looks nice and unique. 


Use the Hook and Thread You will want to sew the hook and thread to your fabric to attach it to a garment. 


Add A Color I love that I got to use this color. 

Color is really important for wedding guests. 


Attaching the Dress to the Clothes It is important to use a nice, sturdy fabric. 

Attach the hook to your dress and make sure the hook is tight. 

Then you will want the fabric to hang down from the dress. 

There are many different ways to do it, but the simplest is to put it on your dress.
