1950s Wedding Gown Pattern and a Beautiful Bride

Sometimes the serendipity of life amazes me.  Yesterday on Facebook, I posted a picture of this late 1950s wedding gown pattern that I listed for sale in my SewHallie Esty shop.  Within minutes, Couture Allure fan Shauntelle responded that she had used the exact same vintage pattern when she had her wedding gown made 9 years ago.

And here is the lovely Shauntelle on the day of her wedding wearing her gown made from the vintage 50s Butterick pattern.

Shauntelle tells me her entire wedding was vintage inspired and she and her new husband held the reception at a bowling alley!

I love that scalloped neckline.  Shauntelle, you are beautiful!  Thank you for sharing your photos with us!
