Patterns and planes :)

Woo hoo!! We're flying with these when we go to New York next January to get married. I really and truly can't wait!! And even Mr Deravelled is getting excited! :)

I am going to have a go at making the bridesmaids dresses myself (with help from my lovely little sister), as I have been searching for the perfect bridesmaid dress for over a year now, and I still haven't found it. However, whilst browsing some patterns, I found the perfect dress!!

What do you think? I have found some gorgeous claret colour taffeta to make them out of. I am having three bridesmaids - my sister, Mr Deravelled's niece, and one of my best friends' (whose husband is Mr Deravelled's Best man). The Moomin will be a flower girl, and I am now searching for a suitably cute historical style dress pattern for her. Any ideas?

The dress pattern looks very pretty. I wouldn't have a clue about making a dress!
