wedding fun part three. the end.

So, my dress.  I was following a very simple Burdastyle pattern and a tutorial at Grosgrain, and yet.... the first version came out looking like a choir robe.  Fortunately, I was using scrap material, so I just took everything apart and reworked the whole thing, basically making my own new pattern.  I ended up really liking the dress.  Not only was it very lightweight and cool, but it held up to my two-year-old nephew, which really is quite a feat.

We were so busy though that I didn't get any good pictures of the dress- hopefully I can get Daniel to take some later.  Ignore his expression in this picture.

I modified the pattern's neckline to be a drape neck, and I added sleeves which I then gathered.  I made a really cool necklace too out of fabric flowers, but that lasted about 20 seconds around the two-year-old and sadly no pictures exist of it. 

um, waitress?  I would like some chocolate cake please with extra frosting which I will then smear on my face, hair, and clothes, and anyone within reach....
