Bridesmaids Dresses

Friday, 4 October 2013

Back in July my lovely big sister got married. I was in charge of doing bridesmaid's dresses - and also a lot of planning everything else cos she's a proper doctor person. Oh what a wonderful day it was. I was in floods of tears during the speeches - perhaps too much cider and not enough sleep to blame, I was sewing til 2am the night before. Here are some photos from the day of the lovely bridesmaids and some other colourful bits.

The fabric I used was from Stone Fabrics in Totnes. They have an amazing selection of stunning fabrics and the staff are so lovely. I'm so pleased with the way all the dresses looked in the end - although on the day I was sort of sick of the sight of them - I haven't actually got a picture of us all together, but they were all different cuts and shapes, some with sleeves, long skirts, short skirts, low backs and all that jazz.

It was a hot English summers day and the flowers where vibrant and the fit was comfortable. Can't say so much for the sweaty men in their tweed.
