Description

Self-drafted maxi dress I made for the meeting of mine and husband’s families. We eloped, so our parents and siblings had otherwise never met!

You can see my final blog post on the dress here.

Material Notes

This beautiful chiffon was purchased in Tampico, Mexico while there on a work trip. (How lucky, that a work outing afford time for a quick trip to the local fabric store!)
