Here Comes the Bridal Fabric

With all those Christmas proposals finally sinking in, it’s time to really start planning that spring, summer or fall wedding! And, of course, it’s never too early to take care of the most important part of the occasion: the dress.
Whether you’re making a custom gown for yourself or a loved one, it’s time to pore over the best bridal fabrics and some seriously lovely inspiration. I rounded up what are sure to be the three biggest trends of the season for your consideration.

Trend #1: Fishtail Finishes

The high-low hem is an elegant way to show off that footwear—or lack thereof, if the big day happens to be barefoot on a sandy beach. The trick? Your finishing touches have to be as lovely on the inside as they do on the outside. Take a look back at this French seam tutorial for an easy refresher course!

Trend #2: Off-the-Shoulder

Shoulder exposure is huge for wedding and cocktail attire this year. It’s delicate and dreamy and would work just as well in satin as it does in chiffon. Get creative and make the design organic with one strap falling deeper than the other.

Trend #3: Floating Fabric

Structured ruffles are artistic yet classically feminine elements to add to any dress. I particularly adored this ruched Reem Acra number. The airy layers look complex but are easy to recreate with light sheer fabric and a stiff ribbon binding trim. The results are heavenly!

So how will you use bridal fabric this wedding season?

Girly Gingham Fabric

I have always had an affinity for gingham fabric. It makes me think of Brigit Bardot, sunny days and picnics—a visual we could all use right about now. I like its playful vintage quality and also its versatility in projects. While the polar vortex has yet to loosen its grip, it’s never too early to […]


Seersucker Fabric

When I think seersucker fabric, I envision wearing summer shorts on a yacht with boat shoes and a polo tee. Ahh. It’s a preppy warm weather fabric perfect for a sundress or breezy button-up—no Ralph Lauren ad scenery required. If you’re already working on your spring wardrobe and aren’t quite sure how to utilize that […]
