I made these quick sketches for a client this week. She's having a really neat and colorful wedding and asked if I could design some striped dresses for her bridesmaids.
I found two different sizes for striped fabrics - the very small stripes are a 1/4" wide satin material. This option is my favorite because the fabric is very easy to take care of.
The second swatch is a 1/2" wide striped cotton fabric. The fabric is easier to work with but it wrinkles easier than the satin. I do like the look of the wider stripe though.
The final sketch is for a color block black and white dress. This option is probably the most cost effective and easy to source because I don't need a printed fabric.
I think the idea of these dresses with a colorful bouquet and sash is so gorgeous! And very different from a traditional bridesmaid dress. I love that the design of these dresses is casual enough to make them wearable after the wedding. I hope she likes these - I'd love to make them.
