@suburbian:  The second dress you linked (beautiful by the way!) is only about $60…what about buying 2 and making some very simple straps with the fabric from the second dress?  I’m sure a tailor could do it for pretty cheap.  Just a thought!  

 Or maybe this one? http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/poppy-culture-dress

@suburbian:  Oh, lol, darn!  I just tried to save the image to my desktop and then add it here, but for some reason can’t.  🙁

It looks similar to the one you posted but has no belt and more of a sleeve…the colors are mostly yellow, black and white (not a drop of blue to be found).

I am having all of my bridesmaids’ dresses made by a local seamstress. This dress would be very easy for a seamstress to make if you can find a fabric. I’ve had really good luck with Vogue Fabrics and HouseFabric  (not sure if they are upholstery only) online.

@suburbian:  Just have a seamstress make it!  That’s what we did when I was in a friend’s wedding.  She wanted a similar style of dress for everyone but with individual fun bright patterns.

We had the option of picking from a few dress patterns that the bride picked out (from this website – http://www.simplicity.com/c-168-dresses.aspx)

Then we picked our fabric from a few options she had picked out from http://www.fabric.com

We all went to a seamstress in town and got our measurements, and boom, a month later we had nice custom-made dresses for $75 or so.

@suburbian:  Ever consider buying one of the two dress options you really like and having your sis wear a stole or some sort of shrug? That might be a cute option. I was reading some of the other posts and the tailor idea is a good one…Maybe a tailor could make like..capped sleeves for the strapless dress?? Capped sleeves would provide more coverage than straps. Just a few suggestions. I hope you figure something out!
