What's left to do for the wedding dress

With less than 5 months to go before the wedding, it's time to focus on my wedding dress again, especially as I would like to finish it a couple of months before the wedding... 


So I pulled together a list of what's left to do, and needless to say, the list goes on and on and on and on and on...

  • Try out front drape (the large piece that goes from bodice to skirt)
  • Decide how to underline the drape (whether to pleat the organza or keep it flat to which the dupion will attach)
  • Cut into the fabric (argh!)
  • Pleat and stablise the pleats with organza selvages
  • Try out the smaller piece of drape
  • Cut into the fabric to make the smaller piece
  • Sew drapes into side seams of the dress
  • Press seams and catch stitch all seams
  • Decide on how to assemble all layers with different closures
  • Cut dupion to make lining for the corselette
  • Make lining for corselette
  • Hand finish all edges for the lining and catch stitch
  • Assemble all layers other than corselette lining at the neckline
  • Assemble to the corselette lining
  • Understitch
  • Attach hook and eye tape to corselette
  • Make modesty panel
  • Attach modesty panel to outer layer
  • Make loops for lace-up
  • Make laces
  • Fitting, fitting, fitting
  • Attach loops!
  • Hem with horsehair braid
  • Press it and that's it!
