This is something that makes us really happy: when brides sew their wedding gowns using one of our patterns. Allie of the blog The Liveaboard Takes the Suburbs just posted about making this dress for her recent wedding, and she used one of our patterns, Retro Butterick 5748.
I think it’s a fair assumption that the McCall Pattern Company (Butterick, McCall’s and Vogue Patterns) has dressed more brides over the years than any other pattern company. We love that we’ve been a part of this important day for so many women.
I have a daughter and I sew, but she says I will not be making her wedding dress. (Mind you, her future wedding is still years away.) She says I’m too much of a perfectionist when it comes to sewing, and that if I did make her dress I’d be fixated on all the little mistakes in it that only I can see. My daughter knows me so well.
Would you ever make a wedding gown, for yourself or your daughter? Or maybe you’ve sewn one already and lived to tell the tale. Leave a comment here and tell us your thoughts on making a wedding gown. Thanks for stopping by!
