For the 'Maids

Hello little neglected blog.

Most of my update-mojo has been absorbed by the wedding blog and flickr... but I wanted to post a little something I've been working on. Okay, I totally rolled my eyes at myself typing the words "little something." In actuality, I have been designing, drafting, grading and sewing up dresses for my three beloved bridesmaids (i.e., not a small endeavor).

Anyway, here are some visual anecdotes of this process.

The bust darts are a little pointy. I think I'm going to open them up and steam them flat, as recommended in Gertie's post on French darts.

You can see more of my wedding inspiration in this post on the weddingblog (wedlog?) and more sewing goodness in this flickr set.
