Bridesmaid Dresses

Pin It Now! Remember those rad wedding garters I made a few posts ago? Well I also made 4 bridesmaid dresses for the same wedding. I drew out the pattern and did a test dress on some cheap fabric to work out the kinks. You learn a lot from making the first dress, and by dress #4 it's a cake walk. Overall, I was happy with the final product. The pleats were a pain, but worth the extra effort in my opinion. Special thanks to my dad for taking the pic... and for possibly photoshoping a flattering tan on me. I could have sworn my skin is more of a pasty shade. Dad, you rock!

Jodi! These are fantastic! I love it!

All the sincerest compliments in the world won't come close to the amazing things you can do.

Jodi, you never cease to amaze me. They turned out so wonderful. They could be used as a cocktail dress. Way to go. I am hiring you for next years Christmas party. Congrats on being finished.
