Last weekend was the wedding of my best friend, Britt, and I was a bridesmaid! When it came to picking out the bridesmaid dresses, I offered my sewing services to create us something one-of-a-kind. There were a few design ideas kicked around, but in the end we decided to go with this design inspired by a 1919 Vionnet dress. Britt's colour scheme was shades of blue, so we went with a royal blue material with black hems+belt. I love this dress so much!! I am going to be making a few for the shop (in different material), since it's just such a pretty and flattering style.

I'll post more about the wedding once we get the official photos back, but for now here are some photos I took of the dress after the wedding. I tried really hard to smile in the photos but I was pretty exhausted by that point. It was a lovely but very long day. Time to sleep for a week!

 That's All.


  1. AMAZING! So beautiful and flawless! A great colour on you!

  2. Kate,
    You are so photogenic, love this dress so much !!. The color and style, flawless I agree.
    Your friend must have been very pleased.


  3. A beautiful dress worn by a beautiful lady.

  4. This is stunning! So much more flattering than 99% of bridesmaid dresses too :)

  5. Oh my, that colour on you is so divine! What an utterly fabulous choice x

    1. Isn't it stunning?! The dresses were originally supposed to be navy but that material was no longer available and we had to pick something else. It was frustrating at the time but looking back I'm so glad that happened!

  6. Beautiful dress, it looks fabulous on you.

  7. Beautiful dress!! My goodness! :) I'd love to see the Vionnet dress that inspired it, too!
