I just got married a few weeks ago so we don't have pro pics yet but I just wanted to show off my dress. We did a destination wedding in Spain (got married here) so not much is handmade because I didn't want to haul it across the Atlantic. I made my wedding dress with the New Look 6401 pattern it's all dupioni silk. I don't have a pic of the back yet but it is low cut with a sash and a small train. I also altered my mom's veil from cathedral length with a blusher and huge bow to more simple chapel length. What do you think?

Details of swap: The weather is starting to get chilly and Christmas isn't too far off yippie! I've organized a few ornament swaps in previous years and they are always great fun. You can have up to 3 partners (but newbies will only have 1 partner). Send each partner at least one handmade ornament and another small Christmas related item which can be purchased or handmade.
DCNs are NOT required but if your partner doesn't receive you must resend. Please put 'Ornament Swap' in the subject line for all PMs pertaining to this swap.
