The Day and the Dress


It was her big day today...

She trusted me to make her dress...I was soo nervous...it had been 25 years since I'd made a wedding dress (my own)...

She picked the design ( I used Vogue 2842 and Simplicity 4014 to put it all together). Congratulations Candace and Spencer...I wish you both every happiness and joy!

Boy I bet you were nervous and then went on to make a beautiful wedding gown. It is a joy to see and know that you made it with a lot of love. Precious is the word that comes to mind when I look at the bride. Her cute toes make me giggle, I am sure the shot was of her gorgeous shoes! You can tell you did a great job because she is enjoying the dress and having fun with it on. Thank you for sharing such beauty!
