We used a simplicity wedding dress pattern for these dresses. I can go look up the pattern next time I am at my friend's house, if you all wanna try to find and use this pattern to make your own. My friend Dunya, as you see, has made her own dress too. I will pressure her to put it up too. She has some good pictures of us outside messing off. We had so much fun, it was lucky because she found like 14 yards of that gold fabric in her closet and we bought the green for hers to have more different dresses. I put about 26 hours because we worked nights for about 3 weeks (not every night mind you) but the hours was about that. With an awesome teacher (Dunya) it was pretty easy for my first WHOLE sew project.
