A really good friend of mine just got married last sunday and I decided to make the dress I would wear...mostly because I can never find dresses I like and also b.c Ive never made a dress before and thought itd be the perfect opportunity!!
I used a butterick pattern, I dont know the number off hand. I ended up only following the directions about 2/3 of the way through...once it got to the part about attaching the bodice to the dress, and the linings and the zipper...I couldnt understand a damn thing so....I decided to just wing it! It worked out pretty well! I had to shorten it and take it in alot, even though I measured myself before hand...oh well!
I was about 90% happy with the dress...I think if I had allowed myself more time, I would have been able to finish it a little better, but whatever....it fit really well and for once I wasnt all concerned about my boobs flying out of a sleeveless dress!! YAY!! I only have action shots of the dress, I hope you can get an idea of it!
Oh yeah, I caught the bouquet and I had no idea that it doesnt just mean that you get married next...oh no...the dude who catches the garter has to put it up yur leg, and the higher it goes, the better luck for the bride and groom....I had no freaking idea!!! It was pretty funny though!
