1920s Wedding Gown--New Pattern!

I'm excited to announce my latest pattern: 
Back in October a customer contacted me through my Etsy shop with her Grandmother's wedding photograph from the 1920s. She asked if I could recreate the wedding dress for an 18" doll.

Challenge accepted!

Here's my initial sketch. In the final design I ditched the bow in back and added full-length sleeves.
Although the 1920s are not my favorite fashion era (it's hard to compete with those lovely Edwardian dresses, in my opinion!), I enjoyed the challenge of designing in a new fashion era. The pattern includes a veil and a second dress with a three layer petal-edged skirt--perfect for a 20s bridesmaid!
