Looks great and very precise sewing! I have yet to use boning in anything...sounds like a pain with the comparison to string cheese - LOL. Are these bridesmaids dresses or for a wedding party somewhere else? I'm confused.

Aww thanks. Yup, farm/country style bridal party and all different sizes and shapes of girls. It's this weekend, so finally getting them to let me mark the hems. It's a challenge coordinating with so many.

These are all lovely and I can see how the style would be flattering to all figures. The prints are just gorgeous!

It looks gorgeous, and I am anxious to see the wedding photos. You workmanship is excellent. I have never used boning before either (See SewLibra's comment). I might be tempted to go to the hardware store and see about getting some nylon/plastic cording of some type at a better price. NICE WORK!

Love the group shot! That is a really cute idea to have a color theme but different prints.

These are all beautiful dresses - quite the undertaking but you sure came through with flying colours. I think you also made the wedding dress? Was this your wedding?

Great dresses, and great tips that you shared. Congratulations!

THANK YOU for all the superb tips! I love that the dresses are all different prints. No taffeta allowed-yay!

Thanks! Carolynw, It was the wedding of my daughter's good friend. She had already purchased her dress when she approached me about sewing the bridesmaids dresses. It would have been lovely to sew her dress but alas...

Nice job! You've made me curious about trying out boning too!

Great work. The dresses look like they all fit so well. Hopefully some of the bridesmaids will gradually realise (especially if they wear the dresses again) that the dress doesn't have whatever problem RTW dresses consistently have for them (e.g. too tight in certain area, curves in at wrong place) and begin to appreciate the benefits of custom-made. Thanks for the review too.
