I designed and created bridesmaid dresses for my six bridesmaids in my June 22nd wedding. Hear more about the design, assembly, details, and final product through a five-post series on my blog by clicking here!
These dresses featured a slightly gathered rounded neckline, interlocking straps in the back, a criss-crossed pleated waistband, a full circle skirt with a rolled hem, and an invisible zipper with a hook and eye closure at the top. I designed and fitted the patterns myself based on each girl’s measurements.
