A vintage wedding dress from the late 1920s can be a little tough to find, especially in the post-WWII world.
But thanks to the generosity of this Etsy shop owner, you can now browse through her collection and find a stunning piece from that era.
The dress is from the early ’30s, and it has been painstakingly handcrafted by the artist Shannon Farr.
“I started knitting for myself,” she says.
“After graduating from the University of Illinois, I started working as a commercial artist.
I realized there was something very exciting in this world, and I felt like I could use my talents in this way.”
Shannon Farg, a vintage wedding designer, crafts this 1940s wedding gown for Shannon Farsetti, a wedding planner and designer who lives in Minneapolis.

Farr explains that she had been planning to sew a wedding dress for her niece but couldn’t find a seamstress who would do it, so she asked Shannon to sew one for her.
Farsett says the wedding dress she created for Shannon came out beautifully, and the couple plans to wear it to the reception.
Shannon’s husband, Andy, is also a designer and the shop owner has an Etsy store as well.
“My daughter and I have been friends for many years,” Farsetts said in a statement.
“And we always wanted to create beautiful things together, and now we can.”
Shannon’s store also sells vintage gifts, jewelry, and handmade jewelry, so you can make a unique and personalized gift to her customers.
Farrows adds that the shop is also selling an original 1920s wedding ring, which she says is one of the most beautiful pieces she’s ever made.
Shannon has also made some fun crafts for her customers: “I think I’ve been blessed to be able to do so many fun things,” she said in an interview with the Minnesota Star Tribune.
