    I am so excited! We went shopping yesterday for the fabric for my BM and we found exactly what I wanted! I was worried I wouldn't be able to find the obscure color I fell in love with, but Michell's Fabrics has the best selection. It only took me 2 minutes to find the Iridescent Sunrise Taffeta I wanted!!! And what's better is the dresses are costing $42 a girl, instead of $198 from the store. Its so nice to know a seamstress!

    Its another relief to have the dresses getting started. Just one more thing on the list!!!

          This was the inspiration dress. At the last minute we decided to go with a strapless version of this dress. They are going to be so cute!!!!

            Congrats!
            I can't believe the savings on such a beautiful dress - I always thought having someone make one would be more expensive!

                I will definitely post a picture when they are done!!

                AnnaBanana: Buying material for dresses is usually pretty cheap, but I think the labour costs are up to the seamstress. I'm lucky that my MOH's mom is making them. I told her I would pay for the labour, but she is refusing. So I'm going to buy her a great gift instead!
