Hello y'all, today I'm presenting everyone with a project I've waited years to contribute.

Six years ago the death of my long-running neighborhood led to a do-over, and it was then that I chose to do a "Through the Decades" theme. Along with searching for historical and vintage cc already in existence, I figured it was high time to start making some myself. So it was one night, while looking at dresses from the 40's, I first found the wedding dress that instantly said "Cornelia". While I did find a mesh with the right sleeves initially, the shoes were wrong, but because of a mesh edit done by Cynnix, I am finally able to bring you this dress!

This gown is, like Agnes' gown, also based on one from Antiquedress.com, and is a beautiful creation of lace, satin, and silk. Done in the pale pink-white color hand-chosen by the bride, the dress consists of a silk-lined satin sweetheart under-dress and full lace overdress, the hem falling gently in large, soft scallops. The back features delicate satin-covered buttons and ties that have been dyed a deeper shade of pink, to reflect the bride's non-traditional tastes. There is a filmy chiffon short train at back, and the outfit is complete with soft, decadent gold-and-white brocade slippers.

If one should happen to catch a peek by way of the wind, one may also see the soft pink stockings underneath!

Cornelia's dress also features a large gold, diamond, and ruby brooch, the "something old" her mother wore on her own wedding day (and which will be present on Pru's gown, when I get around to it!) Originally a gift from her father to her mother, the brooch is a reminder of undying true love.

Mesh Requirement
UPDATE: Since some people were reporting problems with the download button not working for the mesh, and thanks to Cynnix's generous TOU, I have included said mesh in the RAR.

Known Issues
Very slight, but with the way that the mesh is made, there is some small gapping around where the sleeves join the bodice, and is something I myself cannot fix.

Blooper: During the photoshoot Pastor Bronson threw a fit, and refused to wear the vicar uniform, so perhaps it's time I made him his own robe XD

Additional Credits:
I would sincerely like to thank:
catofevilgenius , who not only answered my questions on how to apply lace, but was kind enough to allow me to use her lace in the creation of this dress; Antiquedress.com for having such a gorgeous selection to study; MTS and their wonderful tutorials, as well as the MTS Create Forum and the answers to making things sheer; Willywiluhps, whose underwear I opened up to see how to make good seams on the stockings; Lidiqnata for answering my upload questions; Google image search for the ruby brooch, sapphire earrings, brocade fabric (shoes), and lace (stockings); Ulkrhsn for the original mesh; and Cynnix for the edit I've dreamt of for so long (and the teeny bit of alpha texture I used for the dress' alpha)

Enjoy, and be on the lookout for more uploads!
