This is it! Abi’s Weddingdress! She is coming to fecth her dress tonite, and i will post pictures of her BIG day.The dress took about 24 hours to make, working over 2 weeks on it. It was a fun and easy pattern, but the Chiffon is really hard to work with! She asked me over 1 year ago to make this dress, and i made it as a gift. She totally loves the dress, and glows when she is wearing it! It was all that she hoped for! the last picture i added was what we aimed for. she didn’t want her dress too heavy, so it’s got 4 tiers of horsehair (stiffning) ontop of the lining, covered with satin and chiffon. these pictures were taken tonite, just before i finished the rollhem.
