Bridal party dress

Five years later, 2 kids, and a huge pasta meal just before the photos were taken my dress still fits.

I made this for my Dad’s wedding as I was his “Best Chicky”. Blue isn’t my colour of choice but knew my dad loved blue. Made with a very basic but reliable Janome Mystyle, no overlocker. I hand sewed on the diamontes a couple of days before the wedding.

I think it was the first time I did an invisible zipper and am quite suprised at how well I made it.
I’d like to wear it again if I had anywhere to go other than the playground sandpit.

Material Notes

Royal blue silk dupion
Fully lined
Hand sewn diamonte’s.

    This is gorgeous on you and I love the color. Maybe if you shortened it to knee-length you’d have more opportunities to wear it? Or separated it to a top and a skirt?

    I like the colour even if you don’t :) I made a dress very, very similar to this about 7 years ago. I’m wondering if it’s the same one. What pattern did you use?

    A very chic dress and I like the dark blue – the diamantes set it off.
