Making My Bridesmaids Dresses

Rosery Apparel, CraftJanelle6 Comments

One of my biggest sewing projects to date was making the bridesmaids dresses for our wedding. As big as the task was (especially considering I was in the middle of my final year of uni) I am in love with how they turned out, and wouldn't of had it any other way. Today I thought I would share a little about the bridesmaid dresses and the process of making them. 

As soon as I got engaged, I knew I was going to make my bridesmaids dresses. The tough decision was what kind of fabric/style I was going to make them! In the end I decided on a different floral fabric for each dress, which ended up being the perfect choice.  

I wanted the style of the dresses to be comfortable and flattering for each of the girls, and therefore designed the dresses to be over the knee with a gathered skirt and cute capped sleeves. I also decided to add some ties at the back to make the dresses extra special and to allow me to make the dresses with a little bit of extra room just in case, but that could be tied in with a bow at the back to still keep the style flattering. 

I also made some matching ties for the groomsmen to wear which tied (excuse the pun) everything together nicely. I hope you enjoyed a little look into the process of designing and making my bridesmaid dresses. x
