For my bridesmaids I created 5 different dresses, all more or less based on the Butterick patterns B5322. I gave them a choice of different colors but they quickly decided on a gentian blue silk. To give the dresses some more individuality, they could all chose different kind of embellishments, such as lace, roses, ect.
The wedding dress I wear is based on a Vogue V1044 pattern from 1956. It’s white silk with St. Gall lace. You can find the same dress with short sleeves in my studio. It’s the “saree remodeled” dress.
Sorry for the masks on one of the pictures. To protect the private sphere of my girls I decided not to publish their heads.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
