My Wedding Dress

Hi Dear Folk,

All this talk of wedding dresses and it made me think of mine.  I got married in 1981 the same year as Diana and Charles.  That was the decade of a lot of flounce, lace, beads, puffy shoulders with pads.  I was not a fan of all that and had long admired the 1940's decade of dresses, and that is when my dress was from an original.

Cream satin, boat neckline, mine had sheer net up to the neck.  Beautiful paisley beading, just around the yoke, paisley being one of my very favorite designs.  Long sleeves, came into a point over the hand.  Covered buttons to close them.  Also covered buttons down the net part of the back, fitted waist, with a small invisible zip on the side and a train.  Lovely sheen on the satin.

  1. Your dress is beautiful. I love the 40's clothes and music.

  2. Your dress was beautiful and classic! Paisley is one of my favorite patterns too.

  3. Your dress was so very beautiful. Diana's dress never knocked me out -- too poofy. This is perfection.
