I used this book to reference the following image
The shape of the under bust line is just what I am looking to recreate
I used this book to reference the following three images
The silhouette of this dress is similar to that which I want to have with my dress and veil. a imilar length and fit is what I want to achieve with the dress I make.
I absolutely love this dress. It is a beautiful shape and is such a nice colour. I really enjoy this colour for wedding dresses. I think it is a shame it is overlooked so frequently now.
My dress probably won’t have a fasting at the back as usually they would just slide on. Also, adding fastenings makes things complicated when it is bias cut.
I used this book to reference the following two illustrations

I used this book to reference the following for images
The sash on the waist is something I really adore in this period. I think in a tulle fabric in a fabric to match the dress, it will look really great. I am considering having this as the decorative part on this dress
