Bippity boppity boo!
So, my friend Lauren is getting married in a few weeks. She’s a pretty down-to-earth girl, but when she was looking for wedding dresses, she came across this fairy-tale beauty on Kiera Knightley, and fell in love with its tulley goodness.
Not interested in spending oodles on it, she asked me if I could help make it with her (for her?)…and we’re on our way!
It’s a bit poofier than I’d like, but I’m going to try to sew down some of the gathers to give it a more a-line effect. I’ll need to take up the underskirt (serger to the rescue!) and put in a zipper, then put a waistband across the top, but we’re well on our way. Which is a good thing, because they’re leaving town for the wedding on Jan. 3 or so…
It’s fun to play fairy godmother!
