This summer a friend of mine that I adore asked me to make her wedding dress.
Betsy is a no fuss kind of gal. She told me she knew exactly what she wanted and then she showed me a dress that she loved and said simply...this is what I want.
The dream bride to be.
I am the luckiest designer in the world
Seriously, she was happy with whatever I did, and at every fitting.
We went to the fabric store found bridal satin, some drappy chiffon, and there was beaded lace at 75% off, and we went for it! We were done fabric shopping in like 35 minutes. That...is a world record for me.
I set apond making this special dress, and I did so by drafting a little muslin pattern! Cut zee fabric, a few fittings and this is what came from it!!
Now...if I can ever figure how to transfer a picture from my phone to my laptop...I will be able to show the darn inspiration!
In any case...tada! this is the dress that I made for beautiful Betsy...who will be getting married on a beach in 2 days...oh my!
Here it is........
ps...I asked her if I could post this...and she told me I could!
Congrats Betsy & Kelly, I think you are a couple made in heaven. Have a great time in Hawaii!!
