1950s Inspired Minty Bridesmaid Dresses – McCalls 6466

October 29, 2015

Last year I was honored to make 5 bridesmaid dresses for a dear friend of mine who loves vintage style as much as I do. She chose McCalls 6466, a super fun dress with TONS of tulle.

They came out so well, and I love the shape of the super full tulle skirt! This took dozens of yards of tulle per skirt, it was no joke, lol, but it was worth it. 🙂

We had to mix and match the colors of tulle to find just the right combination to match the other fabric, that was an adventure.

A friend of mine came and took a few pics while I was fitting one of the bridesmaids, it was fun to have some photos of the process!

All the ladies looked lovely (and yes, one of them was expecting!! We added a stretchy waist along the back, I was a nervous wreck until the day of the wedding, lol, hoping the dress would fit and remain that way!)

  1. Lovely dresses, they look great on everyone. Don’t think I could’ve coped with making 5 skirts with all that material. You’re very talented and very patient.
