Bridesmaids Outfit: Part 1!

I made a sketch of how I want my bridesmaids dress to look like so I can send it to my seamstress to execute. She'll be starting on the dresses this coming April, so be sure to check back for part 2 of this post to see the completed dresses.

Here's the sketches I made to send to her:


Front of the dress.

Back of the dress.

Not to mention, I FINALLY got the brooches in that I ordered to go with the dress after a couple months of waiting. I'm not thrilled with the stone that is used in the middle of the big flower, but I'm thinking of popping it out and gluing in some smaller rhinestones so it flows better. Here's what FINALLY came in the mail after months of waiting:

The box.

When I opened it I was greeted with TONS and TONS of bubble wrap!

All five brooches to use on the dresses.

The brooch. See that middle stone? Ugh, it sticks out like a sore thumb.

Different view.. they are so sparkley in person! 

I can't wait to see how the dresses come together! April can't get here soon enough!


  1. your sketches are really cute! kudos to you!

  2. Love your sketch for the dresses! I see what you mean about the centre stone though. It does stick out. The rest of the brooch looks fantastic though!

  3. Those will look great! I was wonder what the brooches would look like to I was so happy to scroll down and see them. They are gorgeous! I kind of like the one big stone anchoring the brooch, but it will look good without it too.

  4. Those dresses look very pretty and will look great with that brooch!

  5. Thanks everyone! I'm super excited about them!
