I am glad Alex's Baby Sister is getting married. It gave me an excuse to sew. We found that linen at Joann's on clearance for $3 a yard, 60" wide. Five dresses for less than $20 with zippers, etc. Fabric bargains make me especially happy. I can't remember for sure, but this may be the first item of clothing I have ever constructed to completion that had sleeves and a zipper.
