The pattern showed the bride's dress having a lace overlay in the picture, and so naturally this is what we thought we were going to do for Isabel's gown. When we arrived at Joann's and Isabel saw the sparkly fabric they had she was immediately drawn to it. Our plan quickly changed and formed into a new one. The brides maids were to be decked out in RED, oh my! It didn't hit me until we had my dress mostly done that I was going to have a RED dress! I'd never had a red dress before..unless you count the one time I wore one for going away at my wedding. Okay, back to sewing... I'll start by putting pictures of the Bridesmaid's dresses being constructed in here...oh, but of course, the pattern comes first so you can get an idea of what the end result will look like.

*Jubilee had to get in on the action. She was so sweet, she wouldn't touch it because we told her not to...so she sat there waving her arms excitedly!
All the girls, hard at work!
Bell sewing and entertaining Jubilee at the same time.
So that was us working on the RED stuff, now for a few pictures of the WHITE stuff....

You can see the pleats at center back pretty well here.
