Wedding Dress is DONE!

ablakemo | Posted in Photo Gallery on

Several people helped me allot with questions on the forum while I was trying to make this dress and said they would be interested in seeing pictures once it was done. Thanks again to everyone’s suggestions. I realized half way through I had gotten in over my head–but it was still fun!

Soo, here’s a photo, it didn’t turn out exactly the way I intended, but none of our guests noticed my boo-boos. For my first and only wedding dress it went ok. I was pleased. I’m sticking to simpler sewing projects for a while!

My flowers are blocking allot of the dress, but the idea is there. (the bride-me-is in green)

    Oh, how pretty! From what I can see, you did a lovely job....pat yourself on the back!

    You made a stunningly beautiful bride. My best wishes to you and your new husband.

    It is absolutely beautiful!  I think Sandra Betzina said that if you can't see it from a few feet away no one will notice the 'Boo boos".

    You look gorgeous. I just love your dress--that color is a  favorite of mine, but one I absolutely can't wear, so it's a real pleasure to see it on someone who can. Very graceful and flattering. And no visible boo-boos in the photo, so I'm sure you were just fine in person, too!

    Your dress is stunning (& so are you!).  I agree that it should be in a bridal magazine, maybe your local paper's bridal section?!  There are absolutely no visible "boo-hoos".  Besides, every handcrafted treasure is supposed to have a mistake!  You truly created a treasure.  Many blessings to you and your husband!

      I learned a long time ago that the mistakes I fussed and fretted over, nobody else noticed, unless I pointed them out.  I stopped pointing them out *G* and am much more forgiving of myself.  Where did this need to be perfect come from anyway?  Your dress is beautiful and one of a kind and you are gorgeous in it.  Be proud of your accomplishment.  Congrats on your nuptuals.

    Your gown is stunning! (As is the bridesmaid's- that's who I assume that is next to you, anyway.) I hope your wedding day was as beautiful as the dress.

    Absolutely stunning!!

    aim:  Wow, that is the most beautiful wedding dress I have ever seen, on the most radiant bride!  You were extremely brave to make your own dress!  I am making my daughter's wedding dress at the moment and your picture has given me a great deal of courage.

    Best wishes!
