#Sewing Bridesmaid Dresses

Two months ago, I had the opportunity to sew five bridesmaid dresses for the beautiful bride, Deb. She chose a slate colour palette for her bridesmaids, and all the designs had to be feminine and flirty, but conservative, with a slight vintage touch.

I had such fun sewing all five dresses, as each one was a different style to suit each bridesmaid's figure and their personality. I took the bridal party with me to the fabric shop to pick out the fabrics they loved. A range of beautiful soft floaty fabrics were chosen.

I then sat down with each bridesmaid and sketched the dress design that they wanted. Here are a few behind the scenes pics of the dresses before the big day.

After a few fittings with the ladies and a few alterations, here's what the final dresses looked like.

And finally, here are some professional photographs, courtesy of Dear Heart, of the lovely newly weds with their beautiful bridesmaids.
