Bridesmaid dress #2

posted in: Wedding, DD#1, DD#2, Family | 6

Bridesmaid dress #2 is on its way! One more to go. I will be adding straps to them, and I still need to run to the store to get zippers, but it feels good to have this much done in such a short time. (I guess it helps that I didn’t give them a choice — that way I could pick a really easy pattern!)

I like that each dress will be a little different. This one is for DD#2, who is the matron of honor. She wanted the skirt pleated instead of gathered. The lace tablecloth she chose has a bit of shine, too, but the burgundy fabric stays the same for all three dresses.

    LOVE the pleats. So much better than the bulkiness the gathers give. You’re amazing!

      Remember, the gathers will lay flatter once I give the dress a good pressing. But, the first dress still could be changed if BP wants. Easy enough to un-do one seam and resew.

        Maria, I’d never want or expect you to redo it. It will be just fine gathered. I’m probably the only one to notice it didn’t have pleats.

        Okay. It never occured to me to pleat it! That was completely spur of the moment on the part of DD#2.
