It seems to be a rite of passage, if you’re going to get married you have to have a hen’s night (or Bachelorette night as it’s known as in some parts). This is the night where you leave your liver and good-sense at home and you’re at the mercy of your bridesmaids, and let’s face it – bridesmaids can be scary!
I had a fabulous day/night/early morning and I am very grateful to my fabulous bridesmaids who spoilt me rotten!
I made this dress for the occasion using some fabric from my stash. I’ve had this fabric for so long, but with only a metre of it I was limited in what I could make with it. It ended up being just right for this dress. I lined and faced the dress with silk dupion which added strength and helped conceal the lower half of my body, which seems to have a mind of it’s own sometimes.
