Wedding Dress

Start to finish.  It was so fun to see this come together.  And the bride lookded adorable in it too:)  That's always a good thing. 
(please disregard the messes you might see around the edges in the pics.  I was sewing...what do you expect?  A clean house too??)

 Bodice

 Attached to skirt!
 Train is gonna be lovely...


 Skirt gets covered with this gorgeous stuff.

 This book is a wedding seamstress' best friend.
 Yes, you CAN make straight lace into a curve:)  That book that is my best friend told me how:)

 These gathers were so beautiful!  So pretty and delicate.  Loved the way this fabric draped.


 And the crowning touch was this absolutely goregous belt the bride picked.  Yes all those rows of beads are hand sewn on.  But the beads were pre-attached to rows of reinforcing so it's not like I had to sew EACH SINGLE bead on.  Just the 7 strips of beading.  And yes I enjoyed doing it.





 SO fun to see the finished product:)  All hemmed and ready to go.

Such a gorgeous gown Jill. You are very talented.

I received the cookbook you sent me just this morning and I must thank you again. Once little man was off to school, I settled down with a nice cup of tea and went cover to cover. So many memories in there! Tonight's dinner will be chicken fried steak, twice baked potatoes, garden salad and a very yummy flat apple pie :) I plan on doing the cowgirl's dinner next Monday for my birthday :) Again, thank you so much Jill, the gift is very much appreciated....xxxx
