There Was a Wedding

I realize I haven't been her much but...

There was a Wedding.

Good Looking's niece Ashley was married to her perfect match Chase one Saturday.

Believe it or not, I did some sewing for the event.

I am thinking that this story might have to be broken up into a few posts.

Let's see what should we start with?

How about the dresses I sewed.

It was only six dresses, three tutus, and one skirt, 
nothing close to the twenty two I did before.

Dress number one was a Jr. Bridesmaid dress.
Ashley's step sister needed  a dress.
I volunteered my services.

I remembered as she was walking down the aisle, 
that I never took a picture of her, or the dress.
Then I forgot to get another picture of it.

Front and Back. 

The bridesmaids had floor length gowns, so I did the same for her.
It was fabulous, I should have taken better pics.

The flower girls were spoiled rotten in raw silk.

Front and Back 
Again with the floor length.

The pattern is by Susan Stewart, it is my new favorite.
The original pattern had pleats in the bodice,
 but the bride did not like them, or the sleeves.

They are beautiful beyond compare.

Now my other girls were not officially part of the wedding.

I couldn't just let them show up in anything.

I mean emerald green was the wedding color, 
and if you know the wedding color,
 and you are going to be in the pictures you should match right. 

(in the following pictures the dresses look teal, but they are really emerald green)

Baubi got this "retro" dress.
it is a simplicity pattern that looks like it has been discontinued
 because I couldn't find it.

Gowyn wanted this dress because it has pockets in the front.
See how you can't see her thumb, that is where the pocket is.

It is so cute and fluffy.
I love that Susan Stewart.

I made myself a pleated satin skirt.

I was looking for a picture, 
but the only ones I could find were of me sitting down.

You can't get a good idea from me sitting down.

The girls are in the tub and I need to get them ready for bed,
so I will tell you about the tutus later.

They are fabulous.
