i used new look 6776 as bridesmaid dresses for my sister’s wedding. since one of the dresses is about my size, i was able to take a few pics! i muslined the bodices first and as always, the sizing was a little big. i made the necessary fit changes and sewed them up (three in total). i don’t live anywhere near the bridesmaids, so i constructed these dresses so that i could make easy alterations before the wedding if necessary. i won’t go into detail here, i have it all outlined in my blog post. i made several changes to the pattern so it would go well with the wedding dress i also made. i’m very happy with the outcome and can’t wait to see all the dresses i made together!
