Brides Maids

Yeah! they are done. This was a good challenge for me, makeing some of the Brides Maids Pant/skirts for my nephews wedding in May. They turned out beautiful.

Brides Maid

This is a McCalls pattern, and I love the way it turned out ;) (that wink is for you Valerie)The girls will be so comfortable and have more room to move in it than with a regular skirt.
I believe I have learned a few valueable lessons...............sheer fabric takes forever to hem. Note to self in the future: Spray Starch is your best friend. And please find yourself a good zipper foot!
All in all this was a relatively easy make, the McCalls directions leave alot to the imagination but it got the job done.
