... But I seriously doubt that my sewing skills could handle such a task.
I was engaged this past July 2009 but my fiance and I haven't set a wedding date. We're waiting till we're both completely finished with school which may be 2 years down the road. But, I'll be graduating (hopefully) this May and I'll start working, but I know once I start working, I'll get caught up and not have time to plan.
Anywho, today I went with my friend to a sewing supply store and they had TOOONS of patterns for FREE! The guy just told me to take as many as I could. I didn't want to horde them all so I just took 5.
Plus, I'm a beginner sewer and I can barely read patterns. I kinda just make up stuff as I go.
This is the pattern I found:
It's discontinued Bellville Sassoon Vogue 1883 and I got the 12-14-16 size. I fell in LOVE with view A and it fit my vision of my wedding dress almost perfectly. Just imagine it in dark ivory/creme with a corset lace-up back and you got it.THE PROBLEM
I'm a really ghetto sewer. Everything I sew will eventually fall apart. Also, I don't have a dress form (aka too lazy to make my own) and my sewing machine is manic bipolar and likes to EAT fabric at random. I've looked up various seamstresses in my local area (I live in Mississippi) and they are few and far in between. (Also, their unknown skill level is a factor.) WHAT I NEED
I'm looking for someone who can sew this sucker and do it well. Most likely, I'll be buying the fabric and embellishments and the muslin for the mock-up. I was wondering if you Craftsters out there know anyone on the internets who will take up a task like this.
Oh. Also, here's the video to my engagement: Shiba Inu Proposal
It's super awkward and a tad embarrassing.
