This post showcases the two dresses that have won me over for my bridesmaids dresses. I made the first one (black and red) playing around with the skirt and I loved it so much I went back to the shop I bought my bridesmaid fabric from and bought some more in a slightly different colour.
My wonderful mum is going to be making the bridesmaids dresses (with my help) because working with such fine fabric she will make sure its finished a little nicer than what I normally do. Probably a lot more hand stitching and ironing! :)
Fabric close to my bridesmaids fabric.
Long skirt (similar to the original pattern)
Close up sorry for the slightly creepy pose.
Only side shot I had sorry haha I'm not even smiling!!
This dress would have to be one of my favourite dresses and in my weekly rotation wearing to work hehe. I bought the fabric from Rathdowne Fabric store in Melbourne. I love Rathedowne Fabric they email me pictures of the new cotton sateen in stock and ship it to me. Absolutely awesome!
My mum was so excited when I told her I was on the BurdaStyle.com website and she rang all of her friends to check it out. She was also laughing at the fact that growing up it was almost impossible to even get me into a dress and now I'm making them as one of my favourite outfits. Yes, I hate to admit it but I was a massive tomboy growing up and didn't even own a dress until I was 21!!
What an exciting week for me! To end on an even happier note check out this photo of my male pug - hes lost a heap of weight in the past few weeks we are so proud lol. It's one of my favourites!
