Orange, orange everywhere

These lovely ladies are wearing halter dresses designed by me using Wildginger's PMB5.  I love this program.  It solves my fitting issues, especially for the full figured client!  They were very pleased.  The fabric is mystique satin with a poly chiffon (next time we will use silk, hated the poly chiffon) from Oriole Textiles in NY.  I interfaced the linings of the halter tops and since the ceremony was outdoors and in Puerto Rico...I didn't put a lining in the skirts.

I have PMB5 and have not used in awhile. Glad to see what you accomplished using it. I can see that if you sew for others this is a great program to use.

These look fantastic! I know the issues of fitting a plus sized (I was very plus sized for my wedding and when I was in other weddings and know the frustrations of buying off the rack... I wasn't much of a seamstress then to make my own) And you really made these ladies look gorgeous! They are just so pretty.

@ Linda. I love my PMB5. I use it for all of my clients. I can take a fitting garment and lay it under a commercial pattern to get a great fit too! It eliminates doing a FBA on the plus size. Your results are limitless!

Thanks everyone for the sweet remarks!

Very lovely dresses, first time hearing at that programme PMB5 will google it to see what I come up with. I am just learning pattern making and it's a bit frustrating to have to make patterns for everyone and then fit them too for adjustments, its ok but not 100 percent.
