August challenge

dressed2atee | Posted in Photo Gallery on

Hello all,

Here are pics of a couple of bridesmaids gowns I  just completed.  The girls came to me the day before I was to leave for ASG’s conference in Sacramento, yikes…being a glutten for punishment, I agree to do the dresses! 

I measured them that day, and when I came back—a week later—-7/31.  I ordered the fabric and entered their measurements into the program and designed the dresses.  They had bought a sage green gown like this, but wanted these girls to wear peach.  So I copied the dress using the Celebrations software from Wildginger.  I made the bodices out of some left over satin for fitting purposes.  I got the fabric on the 8/3—The wedding was 8/15.  No major fitting issues at all, I just love this program especially for larger women or women with more than a C cup! 

Happy sewing…

    Beautiful color on the bridesmaids!  Very nice job on the gowns - I bet the wedding photos are stunning because of it.  I can't believe how quickly you got them done.  Once again - job well done!
