silk on sunday
"The Dress" is almost complete! Phew - I had no idea just how much anxiety and labor (of love) this dress would be. For such an important piece, this project was no small undertaking and I am so glad that I challenged myself and did my very best work. I must say I am not sure I am this proud of anything I have ever created. Besides my children, this is the most beautiful thing I have ever made :-)
The pictures simply do not do it justice. With a very "JCREW" feel the babydoll shape with elegant clean lines is sexy with an innocence of a new bride. The antique broach pocket detailing add the perfect touch that embodied my spunky style bride. Yet, it's classic simple design is perfect for a Savannah wedding. All that is left are the spaghetti straps, i have procrastinated a bit of these, due to the unproportioned length, in the front and back. Sunday's "almost-final" fitting was so rewarding. Meggie literally jumped up and down clapping (like the bubbly 20 something that she is!)and her mom caught her breath at the very site of it, noting that in all their shopping, Meg's face never lit up like it did when tring on her custom TL couture!
My first compensated formal! I actually have to file a tax for Tiger Lily!
