One of my best friend's from college is getting married this spring. She picked out a cute strapless dress for all us bridesmaids. Which we will all look beautiful in, except for dancing (which we plan on doing a lot of), when we will sure to show a bit to much. So, I was nominated to design us a little top that we can throw on after we change into our dancing bra.
This is my idea so far.
Its a short sleeved bolero made from granny squares. The squares are very Gothic inspired (Side notes: See almost all of us in the wedding are architects or engineers or construction managers and that all my girlfriends and I in the wedding went on this amazing trip to Europe when we were babies years ago and fell in love with every city we saw.-- that's why I thought Gothic would be fitting). I see doing each bridesmaid's top in a different yarn so that we all look the same but different. Like one in silk one in mohair. I think I am going to do a light gray or natural color. (our shoes are silver and dress and sash is navy- GO STATE!)
My hope is that they will be able to wear these all again. What do you think?
