I am working on an amazing wedding. Each bridesmaid is free to choose her own colour, fabric and style of gown. Here is the first, a fitted one shoulder sheath with a deep split in the back. It will be made and lined in shot dupion silk and will be softly boned from the waist up.

I have learned a valuable lesson when making the first sample of this dress. Never let partners/lovers take the measurements, they tend to like things a little tighter than the dressmaker does.

The next step will be to make the final dress, ready to be hemmed when she has her shoes in the days before the wedding.
