A Yellow & Blue Wedding!

My husband's sister got married in March. Two of our kids were in the bridal party, along with two other little people, so I got to do some fun sewing!



The other flower girl's mom and I used Vogue 7819 to make the two flower girl dresses. The dress has an organza overlay, a partial circle underskirt with a netting sewn on for volume, pleated sash, and invisible zipper. The satin was a little tricky to work with, but the result was so cute!



I'm blogging over at Sew So Easy with techniques on working with sheer fabrics today. Click over to check out more details on construction of the dress.




I used the Dapper Lad pattern by Ellie Inspired to make the vests for Benjamin and the other ring bearer (wait, I guess they were actually sign bearers!), and this pattern, scaled down a little and with a slide at the back for the bowties.



Hamming it up during the official photos - that's my handsome almost 6-year-old on the left!



Of course Ian needed a matching tie - I used a white on yellow polka dot for the tie tip, just for fun.




And a shot of the family together! My dress happened to match the bridal party, and my husband was in the party, so nice & matchy matchy.  :)



While I was working on the vests I took a couple of photos - thought I'd share them for tips on working with satin - look for a post very soon!

  2. Beautiful! Nicely done!! Love the color combination.
    Yea, formalwear fabric is intimidating. I have a Cinderella dress to do for a friend...luckily it's only the bodice. (switching up the skirt ;) )

    Kuddos to you!
