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.
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.
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
