My Wedding Dress
This Sunday was our Wedding Anniversary. We've been married a dozen years...we joked that the anniversary gift should be a dozen donuts. :o)
I decided to pull out my wedding dress and see if I could squeeze into it. I just made it! I designed my wedding dress and my Mom sewed it. You see alllllll those dangly beads from the butterflies? She hand strung and hand sewed them on! She also hand sewed the lace around the entire hem and train AND added beads to it too!
I had a garden wedding that wasn't very fussy at all. I ran around barefoot as soon as the minister pronounced us Man and Wife. :o) Would I design the same dress if we were getting married today? No, but it was perfect then! The lace has all yellowed a bit, and there are some mystery stains here and there, but I still think it is beautiful. I loved it as a Bride, but now that I see it through a sewist's eyes I see so much love in every stitch! I remember how stressed my Mom was about it being perfect! She really did a spectacular job!!!
Oh, and the Butterfly hair jewels were alllll over my hair on our wedding day...I only wore three for our anniversary. :o)
