I made this little number for my brother's wedding.  My SIL's colors were dark purple, it was SO hard for me to get inspired.  But finally a really big bow and Sunny's dress from A Series of Unfortunate Events combined in my mind along with purple shot taffeta and black ribbons to create this.

I had to completely redo and alter the bodice because my dd's shoulders were too narrow.

That is so pretty. You did a great job.

My daughter loves those colors too.

What a wonderful dress.  You did a great job.  The ribbons on the bodice look great (I'm sure they were a bit of a pain to do though).

I love it!  The bow is probably my favorite part, I totally need to make a dress for my daughter with a huge bow like that!  The model is completely adorable!

That is so gorgeous. I'm getting married this summer and i might have to borrow your idea for the flower girl. All of the detail work is excellent.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
