St. Paul, Minnes...
I made my own bridesmaids dresses which was an insane thing to do. They turned out well but it was final hour kind of a deal with tears. I addapted a Vogue pattern – again, to semi copy a j.crew dress I liked. By the time I was done, with the cost of the fabric, I should have purchased the j.crew dresses but of course, they wouldn’t have been this wonderful robin’s egg blue.
My dress was from The Wedding Shoppe in St. Paul, MN
