What materials did you use? I used Silk Faille for the bridesmaid dresses in two colors; soft pink for self, and a pewter grey for binding at the neckline.

What are you most proud of? I managed to make and fit the bridesmaid dresses while living 800 miles from two of the girls! :) We had to do fittings over holiday weekends when we were able to see each other. Making clothing without having a body to fit it on was hard. I am glad it all came together. They deserve a lot of credit for indulging me (they are the best!).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you have a space to work when dealing with quality materials. The last thing you want is to be cutting silk on the floor because you don't have a table large enough. Oh, and you need to be just a little crazy to make your bridesmaid dresses... and be planning a wedding at the same time. I was, but it worked out. :)
