Make your own gown with McCall, Butterick and Vogue patterns

By admin on January 23rd, 2008 1 comment

Some of our craftier readers may be thinking of making a dress themselves and why not, I say. You will have the pleasure of creating something utterly unique, to your exact measurements and with all the detailing that you ever dreamt ever – skills and time permitting. Once you’ve got a few ideas together, take a look at the patterns at Sew Direct, the official site for McCall, Butterick and Vogue patterns. The bridal range is pretty good, though naturally there are a few humdingers, and the designs look like they’ll be easy to customise so you can get a designer look for a fraction of the price. Prices start around £13.50 but remember to factor in fabric and other materials costs.

    That dress above is lovely! Can you lovely Bridalwavers tell me which pattern it’s from? I can’t seem to find it on Sew Direct 🙁
