well, the time came and the dress was finished and not only do i have pictures of the dress in action- as promised- but i also have pictures of the original dress! ahhh! so let's look at this dress' life....
some time ago, this was my friend's mother-in-law's wedding dress. and can i just say i love it?! almost as much as i loooove her hair :)
so it hung in a closet for a couple of decades and one day resurfaced and was tried on by my friend.
we immediately started chopping it up
it was a little sad because it had such an awesome life but we both knew we were giving it a new life. and without a pattern, we have a bit of a challenge hahaha
but the day came, many years later, and the dress looked fantastic
love love love :)
