    Oh, so beautiful! She looks gorgeous in that dress – my mum is getting married again soon too but I daren’t make hers for her. We’re having a friend who’s a professional seamstress make it. But you took the plunge and did SO WELL!

      Well it kinda helps that I am a dressmaker and I used to have a business making wedding dresses! It was a challenge though as I was working as a manager in a craft department at the time and working 60 hour weeks! Not good for the stress levels! I am just glad I talked her out of silk as on the day it poured down with rain and during her photos the train got black with dirt. I made her stop off at home on the way to the reception and got her to stand next to the bath and I washed the train then hitched it up on the ironing board and ironed it dry! The photographer managed to get a picture of that I believe!

    Beautiful. How lucky is your Mum to have you make her wedding dress for her. I hope it was a very special day.
