I finished sewing Sara’s short version of her wedding dress (which is actually a dress she can wear later) and it turned out great, if I do so say so myself. The real test was when I took it up to Virginia for her to try it on. I had not hemmed it and it still needed a button on the overlay but when she tried it on and I saw her expression, I knew it was a hit with her as well. Have I mentioned I love sewing dresses when this is the reaction I get.
Now that we had the bodice pattern figured out, we set out to get the rest of the fabric. We ended up ordering the overlay and having it shipped but got the rest of the dress fabric during my trip. The next post will be about getting started on the real deal.
