Description

My brother is getting married and his fiancé asked me to make the bridesmaid’s dresses. There are 7 girls/dresses and not enough time, not to mention that each one is different, but I’ll make it work! The wedding is in June in Indianapolis.

Simplicity Pattern – Cynthia Rowley – 2497

I followed the pattern exactly, but it was too narrow in the hips, so I had to add extra rouching at the seam to give Heather more room.

Material Notes

You need a very very thin needle to sew satin – which I learned halfway through the dress. If the needle is too big it will cause the satin to pull.

    Very beautiful. I love the ruffle around the neckline and the jewels. Thanks for the tip on the small needle. Didnt know that.

      It also depends on the weight of the satin. You’ll normally use a 9/65 or 10/70. I always test if I’m unsure what size needle to use.
