Why not be comfortable in natural fiber at your casual outdoor ceremony? When I found a gorgeous vintage 1964 creamy white cotton seersucker textile at an antique store, I imagined a dress like this and couldn't wait to make it. Unlike new cotton seersucker (which in my opinion is thin and cheesy) this cotton seersucker fabric is a beautiful weight and is very soft and pucker-y.
I think the dress has a 60's vibe without the bolero; with the bolero it looks rather 1800's Jane Austen. The silhouette is totally romantic from every angle. You might choose to wear the jacket for your ceremony and pictures; then remove it to dance the night away.
I designed and made this one-of-a-kind dress and the matching bolero combining pattern pieces from 4 different vintage sewing patterns. The sleeveless bra top is fitted and the empire waist body of the dress is darted through the midriff for a slimming effect. The deep 16" hem and 2.5" wide neck ruffles are gathered full and are very flounce-y . This dress is professionally made with an invisible side seam zipper. Neckline and ruffles are all edged with many yards of delicate creamy vintage lace trim. Jacket and dress are completely lined with a soft satin fabric and bodice is inter-lined for added structure and shaping. This modest dress can be worn with or without a bra. This dress would be awesome accented with a cute fascinator, small hat, hair jewelry, or almost any style tulle or lace veil.
(The hem looks odd in the pix because my petite model is standing barefoot on a stool to keep the dress from touching the ground and getting soiled)
