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.

New Look Pattern – 6799

I took some extra room out of the skirt, probably a couple inches at the top and about 10 inches near the bottom. The belt was my idea. I just make it a little wider than the waistband, measured her waist and then made the tails. The belt around the waist is lined with fusible interfacing to make it a bit more durable, but the tails have no interfacting, which allows the knot to be tied easier so it’s not so bulky.

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.

Difficulty

Intermediate

    This is my favourite! It’s simply elegant and the contrasting colour is an excellent choice.

    I love all of these dresses, such a great idea to make different dresses in the same fabric, very inspiring! The brown is so nice.
