This post is for my sister

...who is engaged! So of course now we're thinking about wedding dresses.

Teresa wants a wide flared skirt so it can twirl when she spins. She also is hoping for a dress that she can wear again after the wedding, if she shortens the skirt and dyes it. And lastly, she wants more coverage up top than most RTW dresses offer nowadays--either wide straps or sleeves.

Given how low I think the chances are of finding this, I'm thinking it sounds like something best to be sewn. So I'm turning to you for help. Does anyone know a pattern that fits all these characteristics? The easier the better, since Teresa would probably have to do a lot of the sewing herself.

Hey Sophie,
Wow, moving to Germany, so cool! Not that I remember it but I was born there.

About the dress, one thing to do is to look at all dresses, not just wedding dresses, and imagine them in white (or whatever color the bride wants-I had a friend dress in lavender tulle...) and if there short, just imagine them with more length. Then there's more of a chance that you find exactly what you're looking for.

If you give me a few more details (like when the wedding will be?) I can do a search for you and post some ideas on my blog. I LOVE doing things like this, so just let me know.

That's a great idea! I believe she wound up buying a dress at a dress sale last weekend, though, so I think the plan to sew one got scrapped.
