This post showcases the two dresses that won me over for my bridesmaids dresses. I made the first one (black and red) playing around with the skirt pattern. I loved the outcome so so much I went back to the shop I bought my bridesmaid fabric from and purchased some more in a different colour.
My wonderful mum is going to be making the bridesmaids dresses (with my help) because I don't want to make any mistakes and well, let's face it - she's a pro. She will have these completed in not time and will no doubt make them look store bought. I gotta love my mum.

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 it's now in my weekly rotation to wear to work. I bought the fabric from Rathdowne Fabric in Melbourne. Rathedowne Fabric are amazing, they email me pictures of the new cotton sateen that are in stock and ship it to me in Queensland. It also works out to be basically the same price if I was to purchase it up here.
My mum was so excited when I told her I was on the BurdaStyle.com website and she rang all of her friends to look at it. She was also laughing at the fact that growing up it was almost impossible to even get me into a dress and now it's one of the only things I create. Yes, I hate to admit it, but I was a massive tomboy growing up. I didn't even own a dress until I was 21, shocker!
What an exciting week for me! To end on an even happier note check out this photo of my male pug, Busta. He's lost a heap of weight in the past few weeks thanks to a new diet and lots of exercise so we're very proud parents :)
