Well all 4 dresses are ready for final fitting. Need to get strap mesurement and hem the inner dress. One girl lost some weight so may have some adjustments there

this one was first done and can see the lenght

Those are georgeous, you have been busy. Don't you hate it when they do that (lose weight) I had to make some brides maid dresses for my sister's wedding, they were those strapless things that have to really tight around the top to stay up. One of the girls kept losing weight and I had to adjust 3 times not easy once it's fully lined and boned. In the end had to pin it to her strapless bra and do some er stuffing to hold things in place :lol: That'll teach her to mess with her seamstress :twisted:

The fabric makes them look like froth. If possible, it would be fun to see pictures of them on the girls (along with a photo of the beautiful bride, of course,if she's willing).

Oh my what an undertaking to make 4 dresses! I've been struggling with just one pair of pants this afternoon. I love that hem line & the colours, thanks so much for sharing the pictures of your beautiful work.

GASP! OMgosh! Those are amazing! Beautiful!!!! :shock: :shock:
What are the straps made from? The same fabric as the dress (underneath) or ribbon? or ?
I used grosgrain(SP?) ribbon for ties on my DD's sundress. It actually didn't have any problems staying tied like I thought it would! I thought I would try it, then sew the ribbon together later but leave it loose at the top to still tie it into a bow. Am I making sense? LOL!

Lovely work!
I guess losing weight is better than gaining a bunch?!!! That would be worse, right!?!?! LOL!
