Wedding Part III: Dresses and a Rad Engagement Photo

I made these matching dresses last night for my sister’s rehearsal dinner….both are versions of the Sienna dress. Mine is just an adult version I cut last night. Really simple and fitted….maybe a little too fitted….might need to invest in some Spanx LOL! We don’t have any full length mirrors in our house….so this little mirror in the guest room was the best I could do….

Sienna is a little grumpy today….allergies and a cold….but she likes the dress.

    Amazing dress, I'm torn between wanting an adult version of the pattern and wishing I could wear jersey around my mid section!

    Great job! A dress like that either screams "I need to work out!!" or "You wish you were me!" (it definitely says the latter on you!).
    Wow, that engagement photo is amazing. It looks like an advertisement! In a good way :o )
