Pre-wedding update - BM dress

2 sleeps to go! 

Thankfully I have finally finished the bridesmaid's dress today (would you believe it? this last minute? it's really not my style) so thought I would share some photos with you before my lovely bridesmaid wears it on the big day and takes the dress away with her!

The zip closed - it's a pink silk dupion dress with a yellow zip, and it will be worn with a lemony yellow ribbon. 
 The (contrasting) bodice lining with the waist stay inserted
 Hand finished zip between the layers. 

 Very wide hem! I had to shorten the dress by a rather lot, but I was too fearful to cut it short at this late stage (especially as I had hand overcasted the bottom of the dress already). I had to include "ruffles" for the hem so that the fullness is distributed evenly. 
Some non-sewing related sneaky peeks of the sweets jars (centrepieces) and our wine classes for the big day:

See you after the wedding! I'll have so much to upload then, from the wedding day and the mini-moon!
