I'm worn between posting it on this board and the wedding craft board.


Since I posted it there first, here is the link to the original post in case you are interested  Cheesy http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305499.0
There are more pictures and stories in the original post.

Beautiful. It doesn't look hand made at all.  I can't imagine how long it would take to make. Cheesy

Congratulations!

 Shocked Shocked :oThis is absolutely amazing. I work in a bridal shop and wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Did you use a pattern? How long did it take you from start to finish? All the best for your marriage. I hit this rocks because you absolutely deserve it.

Thank you. Cheesy I didn't use a commercial pattern, but I made my own, because I wanted to make it fitted on my body.
It took me about a month (every night about 4hrs..).

   So elegant, and lovely! I love the gathering- and seriously awesome that you made your own- they are sooooo overpriced!
