Bridesmaid Dress #5: Hannah

I'm happy to report that the fifth and final bridesmaid dress is done!  This one was for Hannah, one of my oldest friends, who always looks classy and stylish.

Her dress was inspired by this one from J.Crew:

To make it I combined three patterns for the bodice!  These two for a few details...
...and this vintage one, Simplicity 6899.  It had the basic element of the pointed midriff panel, but I had to reshape it a little.

You can see how I made some modifications to all three patterns to make it the shape I wanted!

I see now why I saved this one for last, I guess!  It was the most complicate to cut out but luckily everything went together well and it fits her great.

You can see the other bridesmaids' dresses here, here, here, and here.

(If you made your bridesmaids' dresses, or did any other DIYs for your wedding, I'd love for you to share them in the Adventures in Dressmaking DIY Weddings Flickr group!!)

  4. This one may be my favorite, because I'm so fond of pointy midriffs, but I really admire all the work you put in those dresses. I hope you'll have group pictures _ these five pleated dresses should look super good together!

  9. I first thought: "Too cute!" and then saw her awesome tattoo and thought "BADASS."
    So yep - both of those things. Nicely done!
