Of course I was making my wedding dress - that was non-negotiable.
And the flower girls' dresses, little girls are so much fun to make dresses for. How could I not make those??
Now as to the bridesmaids' dresses. I wanted to make those too, but would that be biting off more than I could chew? Would I have time to make everything?
That was the question.
Well, thanks to some pretty awesome friends and family, the hand made bridesmaids' dresses I'd envisioned became a reality.
Next, a couple of us went to Joann's to pick out fabric. I did not want a shiny fabric like satin, or a stiff fabric like taffeta. I wanted something soft and drapey with a matte face. Something like chiffon, only not chiffon as I didn't hate my friends and family who were helping with the sewing, so I was not going to put them through the torture of sewing with chiffon.
