Today I am going to start on samples of 2 wedding gowns, 2 bridesmaid gowns and 2 flowergirl gowns.

The brides gown will be cream satin, heavily embroiderd, beaded front bodice, bugle beads and sequins w/ a detacheable train.
The second will be more straight, detachable train, possibly a bustle?? One will be white the other cream.

The Bridesmaid gowns will be mave and cream satin. I have not narrowed down the design, but it will compliment the brides gowns.

The Flower girl gown will be a combination of cream and mauve. It will have a bodice, a full skirt with a back bow made of mauve organza. I will do some lace shaping in the skirt, possibly of ribbon ties. :nc: ... we will see how creative I can be on that. The other one will be more A-line possibly made of silk taffeta ??

These will be part of my samples for brides and other formals.

Well to the cutting table!
