With my little sister’s wedding set for August, there is much to do: sewing the wedding dress and my Maid of Honor dress are two of the items on the list.

Until today, I hadn’t even gotten around to looking for inspiration for my dress.  We have begun the process of my Sister’s dress, and I will keep you all updated as we move forward.

There are a handful of things I will design into my dress, so the following images don’t necessarily reflect that. Those elements include:

  • A circle skirt or 3/4 circle skirt.
  • A v-neck – as it would be most flattering for the style of jewelry I have for the wedding.
On to the inspiration!

I love how these dresses have the lace overlay.  My dress will be all one color – turquoise – but I still really like the idea even if the lace is the same color.

I really like the waist of this dress, and the option for adding a second decorative skirt.

I really like the style of this bodice, the shape of the neckline and collar.

I really like the sheer over layers and the way the back drapes into a cowl style.


The cowl neckline in the back of this dress has a really pretty accessory designed in!

As you can see, I have a penchant for the vintage era of the 50’s. 🙂

I’m also playing with the idea of having the bodice separate from the skirt – but matching so they look like a dress. That way, I would be able to wear the skirt on it’s own later.

So many ideas! What do you think? Any advice?

Which inspiration was your favorite?
