Bellevue, Washin...






ever have to go to a wedding and not want to have to pay the $$$ for a new dress?
well..since i’m the type of person who can’t wear the same dress to more than one wedding, i headed out to the fabric store and looked for some cheap fabric that wouldnt’ look cheap and got creative with an old pattern. the ribbon across the middle is a great way to hide any imperfections in joining the skirt to the bodice of the dress and makes a nice accent.

(the name i gave the dress stands for Mike and Brenda, because it was for their wedding that i made the dress)

Material Notes

thin crinkly green fabric with a cream contrast lining and a green ribbon edging





i took a pattern for a bag type of gathered dress and added some length, shape, pleats, with thicker straps.

    Very pretty. Adding the ribbon to the hem as well as the waistline was a nice touch too.
