I was the maid of honor at my brother’s wedding. Not only was this a first time for being part of a wedding party, but I was also caught up with designing/creating the pieces for my mom, as well as a wedding the following weekend where I was responsible for making 4 bridesmaid’s dresses plus the wedding gown! This was a pattern I had on hand that I made minor adjustments to and literally made the whole thing in one day. It’s a pretty simple design but I thought the fabric choice dressed it up a lot. Of course, once I had the thing made and got myself out to Chicago, I realized it was SUPER cold and well, too bad for me!
