Description

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.

Material Notes

Peau de soie (Lamour Satin) ordered from Syfabrics.com

    Thank you! I’m posting a bit more each day, with a whole slew of pictures by the end of the week, so come back to my blog for more (bobbinsofbasil.blogspot.com). I just added the “assembly of the dresses” section.
