Got married last Friday, I made this dress in two days with leftover fabrics I thrifted. I tried many many dresses, this one was the only thing that made me feel perfect.

Material Notes

Hand tatted lace from the thriftstore, dotted swiss, petticoat that had been sitting in my closet since college.

      I found that lace for 99 cents at the thrift store! I couldn’t believe it, so I guessed it was just a sign.
