HALLOOOO. So I've been insanely busy doing tons of things, one of which is making this wedding dress. The bride is a friend of a friend who contacted me because she knew that I made clothes and she liked my style. And boy, was she right. She's really fun and funky and was super easy to work with. She either liked something or she didn't, and she wasn't afraid to tell me, which was perfect. We started in November and I made three versions of the dress in sheets to make sure it fit perfectly before I put it into real fabric. and WOAH was it hard to find that polka dot sheer fabric. Thank god for upholstery stores and curtain sections.
Then we did an amazing photoshoot, even though it was unbelievably hot hot hot and humid (thanks Virginia summers). Anyways, ENJOY!!!

















(she was very daring with that dress...)

Beautiful dress and photos! I guess the #1 question would be...Did she make it across safely? LOL
