A step by step introduction to the Vintage inspired wedding dresses influenced by the 1920’s, 1930’s, 1940’s, 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s by the designer Astral Sundholm-Hayes.
The 1940’s is probably my brides favourite Silhouette as the focus in on the waist framed by the shoulders and fuller skirt of the wedding dress.
The 1940’s is also a great time for women as the short sleeve became very popular in evening wear, although traditionally bridal gowns would have had long sleeves, but today’s brides favour a short sleeve so I have designed my vintage wedding dresses with this in mind.
1940’s Vintage inspired silk crepe short cap sleeve wedding dress with high scoop neck line slashed open down the front to the quilted triangle waistband with bust pleats set further down the band. Full bias cut skirt which drapes across the floor as you walk with slight extended train behind to elongate the silhouette and a cut away back to reveal a glimpse of the back.
