Fifty Shades of Grey: Part 1

My friend Kelsi commissioned me to make her bridesmaid's dress for her sister's wedding.  As it was a summer wedding, taking place outdoors, she wanted something created from a lightweight fabric.  The only stipulations Kelsi's sister had given, where that the dress needed to be grey and that it had to be knee-length.

We scoured Fabricland until we finally found this perfect charcoal grey cotton.  The fabric was soft and had excellent drape, so we decided to design a dress with cowl neck.

We also came across a beautiful dove grey fabric that had a bit of a shimmer to it.  We agreed to use that fabric for a sash in order to dress things up a little bit.
