Are any of you making – or having someone close to you make your dress?
My mom [who is an amazing seamstress] wants to make my wedding dress – which i think is awesome.
The problem is that I am having a HARD time finding really great wedding dress patterns. I am not looking for anything super fancy – the guys are wearing kahkis and blue blazers.
What are your thoughts?

I am not having mine made, but my sister had her dress made by my mother’s best friend! It was very simply — a sheath type silhouette with an a-line waist. I’m not sure where she found it but I can find out for you!

That would be awesome and it sounds like the type of dress I am looking for!

If you’re going with a pattern, it doesn’t have to be a wedding dress pattern. Check out your local fabric and crafts store and look through the pattern books. Almost any pattern can be changed, or you can combine a top and bottom you like from different patterns to get exactly what you want.

My best friend is in the process of making one for me, I picked a regular dress pattern and just bought a nice ivory silk. I like vogue patterns!
