Bridesmaid Revisited.

A while back, I mentioned that I was making my bridesmaid dresses and that I was getting pretty bored doing it. Three of the same dresses with slightly different fits and actually making muslins, will do that…..

I may have still been sewing the bows together whilst my hair was in curlers on the morning of the wedding, but I did it and I was pretty damn proud of myself! Woo hoo!

Ahhh, this picture makes me all teary eyed – it’s got to be the best photo of my family ever.

Anyway, bridesmaid dresses…..

I started with a Retro Butterick bodice, mainly because I loved the low back, and then tried a variety of skirts. I hated the circle skirt I put on it initially (the bias on the skirt wasn’t very flattering), and then had a brain wave when I was making up my Elisalex dress. Although I didn’t want the tulip shape of the skirt, the box pleats lent just the right amount of ‘lift’ to the skirt whilst being pretty flattering. The silk dupion held the pleats really well too – I was sold.

I finished them with Tilly’s belt, which I think was perfect. Somehow not ‘too bridesmaidy’ but just right. Ahhh, it was so much fun I WANT TO DO IT ALL AGAIN!!!! (minus the making the bridesmaid dresses bit…)

Our wonderful photographer Debbie probably won’t thank me for sharing these photos already (early edits so I’m told) but they’re so beautiful – I couldn’t be more pleased and quite frankly I wanted to show everybody!!! So there. (Sorry Debbie).

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to
    the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    I visited a lot of website but I believe this one has something extra in it in it

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks
    of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

    I don’t even know how I finished up here, but I assumed this submit
    was good. I don’t recognise who you might be however certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger in the event you are not already.
