The Wedding Dress

I was asked to sew a wedding dress for a daughter-in-law to be, of a friend. It was my first wedding dress. I had sewn a blessing dress for this friends first grand daughter a year and a half ago. It was fun to carry on the tradition!
The dress was mostly sewn on the machine, but I had to do all the lace, hems on the sleeves and all around the bottom of the dress by hand. It was serious work!
But all in all it turned out nice and fit correctly and I was pleased with it. I am very grateful for the opportunity I had to do it, I learned so much. We had a pattern, but I had to change a lot and found out that I can work without one as well. And that is a good feeling, one that I needed.

I had promised them that I wouldn't post this until after the wedding which I believe was yesterday, so I wish them the best! Good luck Tristyn and Skyler! I know you'll be very happy! And thank you Marcia for giving me the opportunity once again to sew for your family's special occasions! I surely appreciate it and all I learned!
