Designing bridesmaid dresses!
I'm actually having a bit of a conflict, since originally I was all about a J.Crew-ey look, mmmmmm wonderful stuff in their bridal/formalwear. But now I'm thinking I may go more vintage-ey, and am decorating with milk glass vases and vintage quilts. I look at photos of weddings where the bridesmaids wear vintage pastel, full-skirted dresses, and they're so pretty! But I don't think I want to go quite that far.
Here's where we started, though: I pulled out pages from J.Crew's wedding stuff, and collected fabric swatches (I THINK I want them in pale grey, although purple was my preference at one point...). I collected some of my patterns that are similar styles to the J.Crew dresses. I was imagining doing a pleated, tapered skirt like a paper bag skirt on all the dresses, with different tops.
Anyway. Still lots to decide, but I have time. The main thing is deciding on the theme/feel I'm going for, and I like too many types. Modern, funky, retro, romantic, outdoorsey... I like them all. Working on developing my own hybrid, I guess!
