Sew a wedding dress: Index of DIY Bridal Gowns

February 8, 2015

My first instinct when contemplating the daunting prospect of sewing my own wedding dress was to google like crazy in an attempt to absorb the experience of every other person who has tried.

Is this you? Are you madly googling?

If so you’ve come to the right place, having unearthed just about every relevant blog post I have compiled this handy index of smashing DIY bridal projects.

My criteria for inclusion are:

  • The dress must be a wedding dress
  • Some sewing construction information must be included, not simply pictures of a finished dress.
  • Professionals blogging about clients are included for inspiration.

So grab a cup of tea and put your glasses on – inspiration awaits! Let me know of any projects I have missed.
