I finished the girl's dresses for my sister's wedding in a few weeks.
Note the pained "I don't feel like having my photo taken" expression.
I used some pretty quilting fabrics and satin to make the waistbands that tie at the back.
I used my trusty Miss Madeline pattern.
This pale blue fabric has pretty white patterns on it that you can't really see here.
I've almost finished my dress too.
An amusing tale. In my last letter to my Grandmother I mentioned I was making our dresses for the wedding. A couple of days later I received a letter back with a gift voucher for $50. She thought it was such a pity that I "had" to make our dresses she wanted me to go out and buy some for the girls. When she had young children she made all of their clothes out of necessity.
Haven't times changed? I don't think she'd be convinced that I sew for pleasure.
