Summer is coming, temperatures are rising, the sewing machine quivers at the idea of making new pieces... And for the lucky ones among us, the wedding season is on!
The pleasure of imagining her outfit, her accessories, her hair and make up, and if you arrive among the guests in a hand-made outfit, believe me, it's guaranteed success!
Whether you like beautiful fabrics, clean cuts, perfect outfits for dancing or are in the bride's BBF team, here is a review of the perfect silhouettes for any wedding: sewing patterns, beautiful fabrics, a selection of notions to accessorise all, let's go for the review of ceremonial outfits with patterns that will appeal to both beginner sewers and sewing experts.
We've also selected the perfect sewing patterns and fabrics for your ultra chic guest outfits here.
A chic dress or nothing
There are dresses that are a real statement, you put them on and something happens. The Bonnie cape dress has a real signature with its perfectly proportioned cape. This gorgeous dress pattern is also distinguished by its very pretty back neckline (bra compatible), and the cut of the cape frees the hands and makes it very comfortable to wear (hop hop, we grab a glass without any problem). Accessorised with jeweled sandals and a bracelet that will not go unnoticed when your arms are revealed, sewn in a color block fabric, it looks sublime.
If in addition I tell you that this pattern is accessible to beginner sewers, that it sews up super quickly, and that it is available in PDF format and that its video tutorial will be online next week, I believe that the beautiful Bonnie will become the summer it-dress!
The Queen's Cousin of the dance floor
As soon as the sun goes down, you can't stop running on to the dance floor? Bet on the beautiful Kika playsuit and its feminine bustier. Adorable and comfortable with its shorts made for dancing straps, this pretty pattern is for seasoned sewers. It is also available in a strapless dress pattern and you can choose whether or not to sew the straps, because you will be well held in with its elasticated back.
In a polka dot version, Kika looks sparkling and elegant. And with flashy heeled sandals and matching nail polish, you'll give it the perfect splash of color for summer.
The fashionable guest with sharp style
If dresses clearly don't make you dream, the jumpsuit option will be the ideal choice: a bold choice that suits you! Sewn in a plain fabric, rid of its ruffles, the Luz jumpsuit is a marvel of sophistication. The work of the subtly openwork bust, the wide trousers, the bold color, it's flawless! Give it an extra touch of chic by pairing it with elaborately cut black sandals and a gold purse (nothings better than the classic clutch).
For you, it is the fabric that will be the star of your outfit. You like clean cuts that give pride of place to pretty fabrics. The Transat dress, easy to sew and with just the right amount of sexy attitude, will lend itself perfectly to the test of this maxi wow make associated with a remarkable fabric.
For the perfect guest outfit, combine it with precious touches that also play the game of elegance without fuss: a necklace in beautiful mesh, golden sandals... It is with a very sought-after simplicity that you'll make your entrance ;)
The Bridesmaids Team
Either you are on a group of sewing friends, or there is one who devotes herself to her sewing machine. You will be in all the photos, alone or with others, you need THE outfit that you will be proud to see in the albums! The Haut Vol dress has everything you need to meet your requirements, sewn in a beautiful plain fabric with a vibrant color. It has the perfect length, the very pretty neckline detail, and just the right amount of comfort to run around making sure the bride has everything backstage, then partying flawlessly.
Your mission for the day being to both monitor the smooth running of events, while looking remarkable at all times, I recommend a pretty pair of flat sandals, and earrings full of character to raise the whole look.
