Perfect Summer Wedding

A beautiful bride (the ideal groom), five lovely bridesmaids – a perfect creative opportunity.

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) …

 

 

 

… with m-o-b and everyone’s favourite Granny in her favourite wedding outfit with her grandson in his!

Bridesmaid Dresses – Alterations

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.

The royal purple dress (on the right) was shortened and the straps were adjusted to address an ‘underarm’ gape.
