This is what I wore for the wedding. The blouse is made of quilter's cotton. I saw a 7/8-yd remnant of it at JoAnn's and fell in love with it. It has birds and butterflies and flowers in just the right colors--pink and blue. But there wasn't enough, so we made a trip to another JoAnn's to buy another yard of it off the bolt. So 1 7/8 yard for the blouse. The skirt is made of a wool gabardine from Denver Fabrics. I bought enough of it to make a jacket, too, something that will happen (hopefully) in the future. It took just over a yard. Total fabric used: about 3 yards.
Check out my blog to see why making the skirt made me giggle.
