As the time crunch to the wedding begins, I need to buy the fabric for the two bridesmaid dresses. If you recall, I am making one for Stephanie and my mom is going to make Vicky's, as they live in the same town. I have made a muslin and fitted it on Stephanie (oh of the Cambie dress pattern). I had just been putting off finding and buying fabric. Finally making time to go to Fishman's (which took no time at all due to little traffic) I was ablle to go and gawk and rub all of the fancy and delightful fabrics there. They are a little pricey, but some of the fabrics were outstanding.
The colors are really my problem; it is a spring wedding and I chose light green and lavender as my colors. I think my level of coordination piddles out after invites and flowers, but you get the idea. I was just having a terrible time finding nice fabric in light green anywhere. I scoffed at my mom's suggestion of looking at silk dupioni two weeks ago (sorry, Mom! ) but then Fishman's had the best selection of colors that I wanted in dupioni. I think it might actually be nice. It has a little form, some texture and just a little sheen without being shiny and awful.
I got an employee, who couldn't give two shits about me and was very cranky, to cut me some swatches. Apparently you can get 8 for free. Here are the four I chose for finalists. They are all silk dupioni in various pastels.
I need to buy the fabric soon and finish the dress by the end of January, plus mail the fabric to my mom for Vicky's dress.
Help me decide, please!!!!
