Bridal Gown with Heavy Lace Top

The gown uses Butterick pattern #5731 for the majority of the dress. Instead of using the pattern for the front lace bodice portion that has a deep V, we chose another dress pattern for a top that is wider at the shoulders and higher in front, not the deep V. Butterick pattern #6086 works well to guide in the adjustment. Butterick 
Simply put the bodice pattern pieces from 5731 on top of the pattern piece of the other pattern you intend to use. The pattern on the bottom will show through on the tissue of 5731 providing a neckline shape to just pencil in on the 5731 pattern.
Combining desirable parts from various patterns allows you to be very creative. To be sure the adjusted pattern works, it is helpful to make a muslin first and try it on to be sure the combination fits well.
Satin was used for the under bodice and skirt, with a heavy lace on top. The lace has a nude-colored tulle underneath all the lace to provide the structure for sewing it together.
Cut the tulle and lace pattern pieces out and baste them together before constructing the garment. The tulle lined lace acts as one piece of fabric as you sew.
To achieve the scalloped edges, carefully place the pattern pieces on the lace, aligning the scalloped portions of the lace with the neckline and wrist openings.
Scalloped designs in the lace can be cut out of the excess lace fabric and appliqued in place to look like it is part of the lace design.
Consider adding a layer of chiffon over the skirt, it’s very subtle but adds a softness to the overall look.
Have fun being creative, make your dress one of a kind.
