W is for Wedding dress. Today I met Cute Girl her Mom and little sister at the Bridal shop in the Big City and she tried on several Wedding dresses. She loved certain features of the dresses and wanted them combined, so we took notes and then headed to JoAnn's Fabric Shop. I will design my own pattern and use the best features of both dresses to produce our own creation. I assigned CG the task of designing the bead work for the bodice of the dress. I bought some great sequins and beads on E-bay. Things sure have changed from when I made my own dress, waaaaay back in the day.
We liked the cumber bunt on one dress, but the tulle skirt, with 9 layers of tulle on the other one. We will add an organdy overlay We will design our own sleeves that give her more room to move.
The price of the dresses at the bridal shop were close to $500. CG's Mom purchased all the materials for about $115. Happy birthday to CG, I will sew it for free.
Yes, if you look in the mirror over her left shoulder in the bottom photo, that is S3 looking on. I told him it was bad luck to see her in the dress. Both S3 & CG laughed. Well, I guess he won't see the actual dress. He just got to see her in two dresses that weren't THE wedding dress. They are a cute couple.
It was a fun experience. Isn't she just photogenic? What a natural beauty! S3 thinks so too.
Thanks Pixiestylist for the title of this post. :D
