bridesmaid dress pattern.jpgWhile making your own wedding dress might seem like one heart-stopping challenge too far, bridesmaid’s dresses are traditionally simple affairs which – for those handy with a needle – shouldn’t pose too much of a problem.

I was inspired by a post from Melissa Fehr who is certainly not shy of a bit of sewing, and has picked out a great pattern on Burda for a flattering empire-line dress that would work a treat for your entourage. You can see how another aspiring seamstress has made the dress (in a satin fabric) here. If you’d like to give this a go and save yourself a few hundred quid, there are loads more idea to browse over on Burda.
