The Making of My Sister’s Wedding: Flower Girl Dresses, Part Three

Summer vacation means I am now dedicated to the project of creating the three flower girl dresses for the wedding. The skirt pieces are still up in the air (though I have an idea for the skirt that will work), but I decided to go ahead and cut out the bodice pieces yesterday.

Laying the fabric out. I love piling the fabric on the floor and just looking at the sheer amounts of it which will become a dress (or what have you!).

The pattern pieces for two of the dresses get placed on the fabric, and cut EXTREMELY carefully. However, I soon realized that our fear of not having enough fabric for this project was completely irrational. There’s a TON left, and there will be even after the skirt pieces are cut out. I’m saving all scraps, however, just in case we need them for something.

I plan to do the lining today, and then begin putting together the pieces of the bodice, which will give us a better idea of what kind of skirt we need/want anyway!
