Yes, it’s true, my daughter, Sara, asked me to make her a simple wedding dress. I am thrilled and honored that she wants me to make it for her and that she has that much confidence in my sewing abilities. Now, I consider my sewing skills to be somewhat advanced and I even made my own wedding dress back in the late 1970s (which truly was a simple wedding dress, by the way). However, this will probably be the most challenging and most important sewing project I have ever done. You see, by a simple wedding dress, I think she means that it is not overly embellished. And, even if she has “simple” in mind, she asked me before she went looking and trying on dresses to see what she really wants. So, we will see how simple she is talking about. To complicate matters even further, can a wedding dress really be simple if the bride and the seamstress are 800 miles apart?
I hope you will enjoy reading about this fun and exciting adventure as we see how simple we can make both the dress and the logistics over the next few months. Sara is getting married next October, which gives me a little less than 11 months to make a beautiful simple wedding dress that she will be proud to walk down the isle in.
