I thought I will start this parade with my own dress that is actually started the day before and finished once again very close to the deadline... I did the hem between church and reception. I was unsure if I will manage to make anything for myself as I was extremely busy finishing everything else so i let it be the last one as I had some backup options but it felt wrong to go with a RTW dress when it looked like I made all the other best outfits at the wedding so I pushed and pushed and once again my family have been amazing helping me cross the finish line in time.
I have spent a lot of time last summer tying to adapt Vogue 9253 for myself and it felt a lace version will look amazing:
I used all the fitting alterations I developed last summer for the floral version except for the back cutout. To time consuming to get it right. I moved the zipper to the side this time and skipped the belt for a more formal look.
The photos were all taken at the event where the party lights did all kind of tricks to the colors on the photos. So the colors are all over the place. The real color on the lace is heather maybe in the diagram below and the Georgette mauve.
floral version but the front is almost the same for both except that this stime the lave scallops extend a bit over the edge and overlap creating a softer V. I tried to modify the drawing to reflect my changes:
