Sewing is my other Creative Outlet

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

I really enjoyed making my three daughters dresses for the wedding.  Okay . . . it was a big drama getting fabric ALL four of us liked and then another drama deciding on neckline shape, length, strap width, and on and on and on.

Finally, the bride and seamstress put her foot down and said she'd do what she wanted and expected them to be worn with a smile.

I used quilting cottons so I could get them all coordinating, but not identical.  Plus cotton is easy to work with – bonus!

I wanted to share a couple things.  First, notice the tulle along the bottom of the dresses.  This is so popular right now!  I've used the Crumb Cake Tulle by Stampin' Up! here.  A quick run through on the machine gathered it up quite nicely just using a long stitch.  Then it was just pinning it on along the hem and tacking it on.

All the girls are covering it up, but the ribbon on the bouquets is also Stampin' Up!.  Gerbera Daisies are one of my favorites, and I felt it quite appropriate for the mood and nature of our celebration.  Baby daisies for the girls were perfect.

In the end she agreed to wear the dress and carry the purse if I let her wear the shoes . . . .
