Bridesmaid Dresses!

I am so excited about getting Suzette’s bridesmaid dresses started!  Yesterday, three of the girls (the other three are in Oklahoma) had their measurements taken by our very talented seamstress, Tinia.  She is making the dresses with only a picture to go by.  It’s a very interesting process.  She takes the measurements and makes a muslin dress.  After using that to get everything right, she uses it as a pattern.  Then she makes the actual dress.   And she does this whole process through the mail with the out-of-town bridesmaids!

Tinia made the wedding gown for Lauren, a girl from our church, using the same process.  Isn’t it (and she!) beautiful?

In two or three weeks we’ll be meeting again for the muslin dress fitting, then in another few weeks, they will try on their actual dress!  I won’t post a picture of Suzette’s bridesmaid dress… I think I’ll leave that a surprise for those of you coming to the wedding! :)
