Event planner by day, seamstress by night, Erica Binns helps run the Mother Earth News Fairs and owns the Etsy shop Barefoot Sewing. Wedding bells will ring for Erica and her fiancé Matt on June 22, 2013.

The Mother Earth News Fair has come and gone, and I have time to turn to sustainable wedding planning once again!

Even though our wedding is still eight months away, I’ve been plotting how to create my dress. That’s right – I’m sewing my own! With the help of my good friend Teresa, who is a fashion design student, I’ve created a design that I love. It’s very similar to the gown below:

I prefer sleeves to strapless, though, so we’re going to modify the pattern to have a boat neck and off-the-shoulder sleeves, like this:
