For my sister’s birthday we decided to celebrate on the 6th Annual Style Chicago Odyssey Cruise that happens every July. It would be my 8 closest friends and myself.
So I decided to make all our dresses! Yes, I know it was a big task to take on but I got a pattern at Joann fabrics and kept it simple using only stretch fabrics.
The pattern was a mix and match one from McCalls 7926, so my friends got to pick and choose which style they wanted.
Also each girl got to pick their favorite color 🌈
I used a semi sheer fabric called Glissenette that had a bit of sheen to it for the body and for the lining I used a stretch jersey knit to match.
This pattern was great for complimenting their body type. I spent about 3 days cutting and sewing then scheduled each girl for a fitting. Luckily the alterations were not that bad which is why I love working with stretch fabrics 💞
I was pretty happy with the results and even happier that the dresses held up! No clothing mishaps lol
We had a wonderful time on the boat taking lots of photos, eating, drinking, watching the sunset and dancing the night away! 📸🍽🥂🌥💃
The Birthday girl 🎈🎉🎂
Yes we even had our own photographer lol ☺️📸
The number 9 has always been my lucky number and what a blessing it was for me to be able to create 9 dresses in 2019 for 9 of the closest, bestest friends on one of the most beautiful days of the year!
Cheers to 30 years of love & friendship 🥂❤💖🧡💚💖💙💜💙💖
