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.

The Queen's Cousin of the dance floor

As soon as the sun goes down, you can't help but run to the dance floor? Choose the Cuba Libre dress, with its airy volume and swirling skirt. A little less elaborate than classic event dresses, a bit more bohemian, Cube Libra is THE dress of your summer! Its V-neckline is feminine, and the open back version will definitely raise the temperature of the evening.
Sewn in our beautiful Solaris Ultra Orange print, Cuba Libre has a sparkling and elegant look. With statement gold sandals and a pretty sleek bangle, you will be irresistible!

The fashionable guest with sharp style

If dresses don't appeal to you, the short suit will be the ideal outfit: a beautiful shouldered blazer and a structured playsuit, sewn in a plain fabric with a lot of character, a bold choice that suits your style.
The patterns of the Mimosa jacket and the Cosmopolitan playsuit make a modern and comfortable duo. The jacket has a beautiful straight cut, a deceptively nonchalant shawl collar and the perfect length. In a Sulfure yellow playsuit, you will have a phenomenal look, ready to set the runway on fire!
Give your ensemble extra elegance by combining it with very “Couture” heels with a sophisticated cut and a designer piece of jewelry.

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 lover of beautiful materials 

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.
