I’ve seen those before — they’re awesome! If I were a Bridesmaid or Best Man and that were the dress the bride picked, I’d be so excited. They’re so unique and each girl can feel comfortable with what they have on. 🙂

Funny that a big company is copying twobirds and etsy sellers. Does anyone know if the drapy fabric on this kind of dress clings to one’s most unflattering places? I imagine this would not hide my hips the way I would like.

Actually twobirds and etsy are not the ones who came up with these dresses…they copied them….from a 1970s pattern

Oh wow! That’s really neat, the only thing I would worry about would be the ability to replicate the different designs…I’m not all that great with that stuff, even with a tutorial! 😉

I don’t think it was Etsy sellers that invented these, American Apparel has been selling them for years. When you break it down, it’s essentially the same as a sarong, but with the skirt hemmed in. Hope I don’t sound rude, but just because someone has an Etsy shop doesn’t mean all of their ideas are original.

My friend actually wore one of the twobirds dresses as her wedding dress and she looked amazing! It isn’t clingy at all.

I remember my grandma had one of these back in the early 90’s… she’d always wrap me up in it & try out the different styles! lol

@rachel: If there are any bulges on a BMs body they definitely should invest in some spanx… jersey knit isn’t always the most flattering fabric 🙂

Victorias Secret is the cheapest one at $95, Etsy has a couple sellers that have them for around the same price.

The Dessy one is $190

Two Birds and that other brand is VERY expensive. Upwards of $250.

I’m either going with the Victoria’s Secret Ruched Version or one by a Etsy Seller depends on color.

GL!

Cool. Be ware, some jersey material is clingy and not too flowy.

By The Way. One of the bees is going with the generic VS one and she wrote a post about it. She said it was actually very forgiving, the jersey material.

And I agree, this is not a original design. Two Birds and etc were just smart enough to market it for crazy $$$$ as a “bridesmaid” dress.

We’re doing convertible dresses! Except we are making mine. They are super simple and easy. It’s only costing my girls about $35 a piece. We’re modifying a Vintage Vogue pattern from 1957 to have a convertible top.
