227 Edwardian Bridal Gown


Misses 6-16.

This is Edwardian charm at its best. This gown captures the essential elements of Edwardian charm, the high neck, puffed sleeves, nipped-in waist, full sweep of skirt, and as much lacy detail as the eye can behold. All view feature bodice and hip yokes that descend into long panels in the front that end at waist and hem. The bodice fullness is softly gathered into the yokes and a full circle skirt falls from the hip. The sleeves, full and puffed at the cap are snug fitting below the elbow. The center back opening may be fastened with hooks and eyes, buttons, or a zipper. 

Suggested fabrics: Light to medium-weight cotton or blends such as batiste, lawn, voile, or broadcloth; handkerchief linen; silk broadcloth or crepe de chine; satin; taffeta. Original garments were made of cotton batiste. Simplified version can also be made from rayon or wool challis. Stripes, plaids, one-way prints, or diagonals are not suitable.
