Description

My youngest sister got married yesterday, and my two daughters and my niece were all in the wedding. My sis asked if I would make their dresses, I said sure. Well, a week before the wedding, she FINALLY gets the fabric. The day before the wedding, she brings me the tulle for the overskirts, and the flower petals that I put in the tulle. The night before the wedding, she calls and asks if I can make 8 garters…no, my family doesn’t procrastinate at all… :D
It was a bit of a stressful week, but I got it done and nothing fell apart, so hooray.
Dresses: white stretch crepe-back satin. Shirred back, so yay for not having to mess with zippers or buttons. The tulle is gathered onto elastic and I just pinned them to the sashes so they wouldn’t fall down. My oldest daughter has a double-layered tulle skirt and a twisted sash made with both colors. Sorry I don’t have great pictures, I’ll try and track down some better ones once my photographer sis gets me a disc of the photos she took.
Pattern from New Look 6613
