Andi Dorfman Makes Bachelor Premiere Dress for $15: 'I Couldn't Find Anything I Liked'

Posted on

We’ve all been in this situation: A big party to go to, and nothing to wear. Former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman had the same problem when picking an outfit for the Bachelor Season 19 premiere. So she designed her own dress and made it on a flight out to L.A.

“I love fashion, yeah, but honestly I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I went to the fabric store,” she told PEOPLE on the red carpet. “I sewed it on the plane, so don’t look too closely at the hemline — seriously don’t. The shoes are Jimmy Choo, so I feel like that makes up for it. The clutch is Jimmy Choo, the shoes are Jimmy Choo, and the dress was like $15 of fabric.”

Dorfman (an assistant District Attorney) has pursued her interest in fashion post Bachelorette, also designing a T-Shirt for the brand Southward Apparel.

So will she be creating her wedding dress? TBD. Dorfman says she and fiancé Josh Murray have put the plans on hold a bit.

“I think now that all of this is starting again, it’s time to take a little break and make a little home in Atlanta and figure it out there,” she said, adding, “I would definitely have some of the girls from my season in my wedding, at my wedding. There’s definitely some girls that I’ve kept in good contact with — they’re some of my best friends.”

One thing’s for sure — the bride and groom will have the best eyebrows at their wedding. Talk about eyebrows on fleek…

What do you think of Dorfman’s dress? Should she keep designing? Share your thoughts below.
