so my awesome friend has an amazing Scottish boyfriend, and one day they were like... "screw this visa immigration bs, let's go get married in VEGAS."

I was all like "OOOH OOOH LET ME MAKE YOU A DRESS" [and matching bowtie].

this is the result of said interaction:










the package all ready to ship out to the fabulous Sin City:



they tie the knot tomorrow, I am SO EXCITED to see pictures from it!

UPDATE
hey guys! lots have asked about the pattern, so I thought I'd let you all know. I didn't use a pattern, I simply draped it on my dress form. It's a super easy pattern though, it's just a circle skirt with a crinoline underneath that I made. Very simple straight waistband, and the top is just a normal princess seamed, sweetheart neckline top. It only looks complicated because the outside blue layer I free-form draped with pleats. Easy peasy!

Thanks so much for all the love!

That dress is AWESOME! I love the mix of fabrics and colours!

I especially like how you've got the shape of a traditional wedding dress, but then not the length or colour. I think it definitely suits the Vegas idea!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
