Last year, one of my best friends asked me to be her bridesmaid and told me she was going with the color of teal. After searching what seemed like a zillion bridal websites for a dress, I gave up. It seemed that teal was not popular enough of a color to make in many different styles of dresses. That said, most of the dresses available were very plain silhouettes (plain strapless or plain strapped) for $200 and up. I pondered this for a bit and decided to try and tackle making one myself (keep in mind this was waaaayy before sewing any of the other things in this blog). I figured that if it turned out to be an utter fail, I could always buy one a few months before the wedding.
