Looking back on my first sewing project

It has been just over two years since I decided to take on the mammoth task of designing and stitching my own bridesmaids dresses! Before this, I had only ever turned up a pair of trousers :) My husband and I got married on July 14th, 2014! It was an amazing day. 

Welcome to your blog post.

Do you have a design in mind for your blog? Whether you prefer a trendy postcard look or you’re going for a more editorial style blog - there’s a stunning layout for everyone.

Fabric Colour and Dress Style 

I choose a duck egg blue chiffon fabric with contrasting lace top overlay. The two laces were different on both my girls which made for a nice, unique feature. I also added a hand sewn pearl necklace which dropped down the back to catch the chiffon train which I had added for the 'wow factor'! I took my time designing and picking the pattern for this dress.

I choose the fabulous Vogue V8852 as a base for the dress design and added my own twist (as usual). I was not keen on the seam down the front of the dress as shown in the pattern picture so instead of cutting two of the fabric I cut it on the fold which meant there was no seam - magic :) 

The chiffon was rich and full of movement for my beautiful bridesmaids. A summer wedding is perfect for pastel colours so keep these shades in mind if you are getting married in sunnier months.

I started by cutting all the pieces out - lining, chiffon and lace! I layered and stitched the pieces together and finished the chiffon fabric with french seams which are so need. I then added the two pieces of chiffon to the shoulders and caught the chiffon trail with the pearls sewn around the neckline. 

Lots of Love,

Angeline xx
