i am doing the same thing! i just only bought the fabric and the pattern from Butterick pattern #b5322 which has 5 different styles to choose from and the patterns like A & C from it are super easy! Now here’s the catch…i’m trying to find a seamstress! so i’m not really DIY but hopefully it won’t cost more than $100 per dress otherwise it kinda defeats the purpose but since i live in LA i figured i can find someone who works in the fashion district.  But honestly these places like David’s Bridal and Alfred Angelo and all the bridal shops are trying to charge $200 for the same pattern! Good luck to you!

I didn’t…actually didn’t even think about it until it was too late because I think my Mother-In-Law would have been up to the task.  Miss Perfume did, though!  See here posts here, here, and here.

By the way, your mom looks like she did a great job!  You are one lucky lady to have her. 🙂
