I am very excited – ordered the fabric to have the bridesmaids’ dresses custom made by a local seamstress. Here is the fabric I ordered: Crepe-Back Satin.
Including the zipper & high-quality thread, the cost for materials is under $60/dress. The seamstress will make the dresses for $40/dress AND is willing to do a trade (I do marketing professionally and she is looking to build her business, so I had a ton of ideas for her). So max my bridesmaids will have to pay is $110 (assuming some supply comes up the seamstress hasn’t mentioned), but it could be as low as $60, and they are custom made to each person’s size.
One of my bridesmaids is going to be 8 months pregnant, and another one really wants a dress with a sleeve (seamstress is modifying pattern to accomodate both), so this was a great way to go. Something to consider! I am jazzed.
