Description

For the past few months I have spent most my free time preparing my lovely cousin’s wedding. Being her bridesmaid I wanted to give my everything to make their big day special. And one of the things I did was sewing our bridesmaids’ dresses.

I chose Sewaholic’s Cambie pattern as the base for the upper part. The lower part of the dresses I then drafted according to my own and my cousin’s (the other bridesmaid) wishes. We found this beautiful lace to be used in the back. I think this detail made these dresses perfect for winter time. And I also added pearl buttons as a small detail. Loved this!

You know how it is always hard to be a girl without a handkerchief at a wedding. While standing next to the happy couple during the ceremony we could not have our purses to hold this much needed item. Therefore I added practical but invisible pockets to the left side of the hem. This was perfect – and much needed :)

While being a woman who likes every outfit to be perfect, I also made a nice bag to hold my shoes and a cute little make up bag slash purse.

I have to say this was the most perfect and beautiful wedding I have ever attended :) We had such a great time and we bridesmaids really enjoyed our lovely dresses.

      Thank you so much Celeste! I too was a bit surprised how versatile this pattern is. And since it is not cut too open in the back it was perfect for this winter wedding. Taking that we have quite cold winters in Finland :)
