My Yellow Bridesmaid dress

Added Aug 6, 2008

by retro99

Coeur D'alene, I...






Yellow taffeta bridesmaid dress that I made for myself for my sisters wedding. I altered the pattern by taking off the sleeves, lowering the neckline, lowering the backline, and taking in the bodice. I also sewed the lining fabric and taffeta right sides together on the bodice then turned them right sides out so the the edges had a more finished look.

Material Notes

Yellow taffeta, White lining fabric, zipper

    Cool – there is a massive trend in my country for Bridesmaids to wear black so I am happy to see one in a colour. And such a great summery colour too!
