I finally am able to post pictures, and I've been waiting to post the major project I worked on during the fall last year.  My friend got married on Halloween, and knew exactly what her dress should look like.  However, it seems that no bridal shop carried what she wanted, so I volunteered to make it.  It was fun.  We bought 2 different patterns to get the look she wanted, and we went from there. 
When I actually got to start sewing the dress, I didn't have a functional machine, so it was totally hand-sewn.

I also made the veil, but that was sort of an afterthought.

Haha, I didn't think it was crazy...that's how I work with projects.  I jump in with both feet and don't realize that it was "impossible" until after it's done!  Thank you all for the love!
