There's nothing I love to make more than bridesmaid dresses...and here's the most recent!
I talked with Clare many times about the design of the dress, and we eventually decided on a hybrid of a couple of dresses from Heidi's wedding last year. We took the bodice from dress #4 and combined it with the waistband and skirt of dress #3, and the result was picture perfect. (And how much do you love the yellow shoes on all the girls?!).
Here are the details:
Pattern - New Look 6002 bodice and waistband; simple gathered rectangle skirt
Fabric - Dupioni Silk (go check it out! It has the coolest black slubs running through it), lined with Charmeuse Satin (added the perfect amount of weight and warmth), both from Fabric.com
Time - 8 hours
Consensus - I wanted to keep it, Clare looks killer in it, so...WIN
