replica of the kate hudson dress in how to lose a guy in 10 days- with a few modifications.

Material Notes

vintage yellow antique satin





me! the first thing i have ever sewn! (besides boxers in 8th grade-many years ago) im so impressed with myself! didnt even use a pattern, just went with it. and it only took a total of about 8 hours on and off!

it wont let me upload more pics so please visit my blog ( to see the rest! thanks :)

    The yellow dress is lovely and your wedding dress on your blog is dreamy. I also read that you were hit head on in an accident and I hope you are healing physically and mentally.

    for some reason it wont let me upload and other pics, just that one. they are too big or something i guess. so youll have to go to my blog if you wanna see more pics- its -please ignore the 5 pounds of fat i gained on my stomach in the past few months..yikes. lol. and thank you! its not perfect by far, a little uneven in parts and stuff, but all in all pretty good for my first thing!
