My Wedding Dress…

…that’s not for me. =) No, I started sewing wedding dresses when I was fourteen for our county fair – there was a category for “formal dresses,” so I thought “why not sew a wedding dress? The only difference between it and a normal dress is extra fabric, some lining and maybe some more advanced sewing techniques.” So I sewed one -

This year I am doing another dress…and here are my plans. I’ve already sewn about half of it…and am now working on beading it. =)

I’ll post photos of the finished dress when it’s done. I’m also attempting to sell my first wedding dress, and will be selling this next dress after October…so if anyone needs a wedding dress…

So beautiful! That is amazing that you made that! I can't wait to see the next one! Just by the drawings I can already tell that it is beautiful too!

Mattea - Ha ha...yeah, I had fun with it! One of my friends modeled it for me - we had fun with the photoshoot! (It was my first time working with someone outside my family, and I'm afraid I didn't do as well as I wanted to, but we still had fun) =)

Hope Marie - Your question isn't dumb at all! =) I use Picasa (a free download from Google) to put my name on. They let you put whatever text you want on your photos, and they also let you position them at any angle you want. =)

Allie - Thanks so much! Yeah, I'm excited about the next one, too! ;)
