Hi all! My New Year’s resolution is to give more time to crafting, including posting what I have made! I was on Craftster a long time ago (but mainly a lurker), so hope to be more regular here.
I am from the UK, and my best friend recently got married in the San Francisco area, so I wanted to make a dress which was super special to wear at her wedding.
I don’t really like using patterns, so I draped this. I based it on a dress I’d seen one of the women wearing on Selling Sunset (love that show!), and also a wrap dress I wore to a wedding the year before. I’d originally planned for the dress to be full length all the way around with a split up one side, but I ran out of material and had to adapt it.
I was so pleased with how it turned out - I made myself do all the sewing properly and made sure I didn’t cut corners. I also did my first automated buttonhole which I was really excited about!
The location for the wedding was absolutely gorgeous! The three of us girls from the UK all wore blue, (which was completely unplanned) and so we were dubbed the bride’s “something blue”!
I am getting married (in the UK) in October this year, and will be making my wedding dress! Eek!
