For my bridesmaids?

Since I want to sew the dresses for my bridesmaids myself, I’m just sewing 3 or 4 samples they can choose from. This is my dress I have in mind for them, after a Burda pattern (no. 713) I dowloaded from the German page. The top is made of Dupioni silk, the skirt is polyester with a rose pattern.

    Absolutely stunning! I would pick this one – LOVE the rosette skirt. Would look great with a wide colored sash for the bridesmaids. Good luck!

    I love the dress, but you might want to consider that if some of your bridesmaids are a little on the chubbier side, they might not look as good as you in the dress. Yet, if this is your aim: get them to wear a strapless-clingy-silky dress. :)

    Take care and best wishes

    This one is perfect, I guess they will choose it! :) You pretend to sew 10 (!) dresses! Oh my god! I am very curious how your wedding dress will come out! Ps: Wird es eine Doppelhochzeit, oder warum 2 Hochzeitskleider?

      Thanks victorS! The wedding takes places in August 2011. So there’s still enough time to sew 5 bridesmaids dresses, 5 flower girls dresses & 2 wedding dresses ;-)
