You may remember I'm making all of my bridesmaids' dresses. This one is for my fiancé's big sister, Darcy. She lives in the Bay Area but was able to come up to Portland for my bridal shower and beach weekend, and I threw her dress together after taking her latest measurements so we could get the fit right while she was here!
It was modeled after this lovely silk chiffon floaty dress from J.Crew:
This one was probably the trickiest to cut out, since I combined two very different patterns for the bodice!
See how I combined the two very different backs?
Darcy has a larger-than-average cup size, so I added some length in the bodice to allow for it. It ended up being a little long in the shoulders, though, the way I did it--if you try this at home, add the length below the armpit.
Here she is!
The other dresses that are done are Kirstin's, Shauna's and Robin's. All five bridesmaids will be wearing the same pale grey cotton blend, and purple shoes and cardis.
