I guess I’m crazy because I decided to make my wedding dress, my bridesmaid dresses, my flower girl dresses, the guys ties, the table cloths for the reception and the curtains for the church. (It would have been fine except I did all the paper stuff too, invites, thank yous, save the dates, RSVPs, etc.) So I had lots of great help with everything! My Maid of honor even cut out a couple of the dresses for me! (She’s the bomb!!!) The wedding dress and the bridesmaids are a Simplicity pattern and the flower girls are McCalls. The ties were a mix of patterns and creativity…meaning I couldn’t get the patterns right and I had to improvise. They came out pretty well.
Crepe back polyester satin, satin lining for the blue ones and cotton sateen for the white, the lining wasn’t thick enough to cover everything in the white.
