A beautiful bride (the ideal groom), five lovely bridesmaids – a perfect creative occasion.
One steamy Sunday in June,Sew-in-company helped m-o-b, bride and a bridesmaid assemble the bridesmaids’ gowns – the pattern came from an old Anne Ladbury book (previously seen here) .
Sid performed an inspection and approved!
So did the bride’s team!
Finally, one bridesmaid (wearing Ghost with altered sash to improve fit) and her mother wearing Sew-in-company jumpsuit and bespoke hat (thank you Helen).
I am often asked to help adjust ‘off-the-peg’ bridesmaid dresses, not my favourite task (it’s much more satisfying to start from scratch) but I am willing to oblige!
The pale green dress was taken in, an additional lining was inserted, a sash created and the strap adjusted.
Waist Definition Required
Much better fit!
The royal purple dress (on the right) was shortened and the straps were adjusted to address an ‘underarm’ gape.

Just having creative fun!
For this summer wedding, the silk was green, shot with yellow, gorgeous!

Creating seven blue silk dresses for bridesmaids aged 7 to 25 was a delightful challenge – for the most perfect of weddings!
