Is that wedding bells, I hear? It certainly is.
This wedding season (September to March), we have been invited to 4 weddings and 2 engagement parties! While to some that may not be a lot, to date I have been to 4 weddings & one was my own. I always like to make a big deal out of getting dressed up for formal occasions, as you always look great in photos.
This wedding season I like to do things a little differently, I want to make everything* I wear, what girl doesn't need an excuse to make fancy dresses?
So here's the plan:
For the first engagement party dress, I want to make is New Look 6048 in a polished cotton that is a dark blue with polka dots.
For the first wedding, I'll be wearing a *store bought dress as it is my sister's wedding and I am matron of honor. Its a flattering dress in deep navy.
For the third wedding, dress I want to make will be vintage vogue 2960 in a colourful palette of black, grey, purples, turquoise, white, blue & pink in cotton sateen. I picked it up from spotlight for $1.50 per metre ages ago but i couldn't find a pattern that i was comfortable with as i really like the fabric.
The fourth dress for the fourth wedding will be Vogue 1174, my friends wedding has a white & red theme. I bought 3.5 metres of red & white linen at the cleggs sale yesterday, its currently drying on the line, the only difference I'll make, is to add straps and add a full skirt, I'm going for a vintage look that I'll be able to dress up and down.
I don't have a plan for the second engagement party dress yet. I would like to use some linen I have, so if anyone has an idea please let me know! :)
So do you think I'm aiming too high and being over ambitious or do you think its a reasonable challenge?
Thanks for reading!
