What a gorgeous yet unusual bridesmaids dress, just love all the detail on the back bodice.  How many bridesmaids are you having?  The detail and all that scalloping is beautiful - well done.

I’ve got six bridesmaids! The skirts are all different colours and then the tops are the same fabric but with different underlining (so they look slightly different colours) and different styles.

If you have enough scraps of the floral lawn, remember to make pocket handkerchiefs for all the groomsmen. 

I am impressed with your sewing, and your plan for your wedding party.  They are really quite beautiful.

Finished another bridesmaid top!



Had a bit of a nightmare, because I changed my mind at the last minute and put in an invisible zip instead of a separating one, but I forgot that meant I should put in my all in one facing before the zip. :headbang:

I decided that cutting the facing into separate neck and armhole facings was better than unpicking, and I think it's worked out okay. It's maybe a little bulky on the strap where the overlocked edges meet, but it probably lies better than it would have with the original all-in-one facing.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Again this is looking beautiful, love the colour of the lining, you have obviously put a lot of thought into how the wedding party are going to look and also all the detail on both your dress and those of the bridesmads, and the mother of the bride outfit - no wonder you started sewing these so early they are going to be stunning.
