Corrie gave each bridesmaid a color swatch, some brand name colors she liked and let us find out own dresses.
A couple weeks ago I stumbled upon a dress in Thift Town which matched my swatch perfectly! A Jessica McClintock for $7.99 and it fit.
Here's what it looked like when I got it home.

Ok, two problems:
1. Awkward length
2. Too much cleavage
So I took the dress to a tailor, wore a cami-bra and voila!
I did a little research, these dresses usually run upwards of $120.
After alterations and dry cleaning I spent a little over $60.
Had I done the alterations myself I could have saved $45, but I don't know how to sew.
